Although there appears to be agreement that work on the [uievents] spec 
should stop, the various replies raise sufficient questions that I 
consider this CfC (as written) as failed.

Travis, Gary - would you please make a specific proposal for these two 
specs? In particular, what is the title and shortname for each document, 
and which spec/shortname becomes the WG Note?

After we have agreed on a way forward, I'll start a new CfC.

(I believe the Principle of Least Surprise here means considering specs 
that currently reference [uievents] or [DOM-Level-3-Events]. F.ex., I 
suppose a document titled "UI Events" with a shortname of 
DOM-Level-3-Events could be a bit confusing to some, although strictly 
speaking could be done.)

-Thanks, AB
