Sorry, this came out of comments from Marcos and others that having UI Events on WebApps's PubStatus (and in Google Search results) along with DOM Level 3 Events was confusing--e.g., which is the spec to be looking at? It turns out that the current UI Events spec has very little in it at the moment (we've back-ported most of its content into DOM Level 3 Events), and is now understood to be a home for future "UI Events" features (after wrapping up DOM Level 3 Events). So, the suggestion was that we officially stop working on UI Events (as a current deliverable) and potentially re-start it later when we're ready. This should alleviate the confusion. This lead to my questions above.

DOM Level 3 Events (already done)

Scheduled for inclusion in DOM Level 3 Events (Bug 25927)

...and other bugs yet to be fixed.
