Please do not standardize new initXXXEvent() methods. Instead use event  
constructors like HTML, Progress Events, DOM4, etc. Example:

http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/progress/#progressevent

Using DOM4 you could also use the "fire an event" terminology to make it  
clear which events are trusted and which are not.


Instead of introducing a new interface called DocumentTouch please use  
"partial interface Document" instead to extend the Document interface. You  
need to add a reference here too for Document.

Is it too late to replace these create* methods with actual constructors  
by the way? Should we add constructors nevertheless?
