Hi Anne,

We captured your feedback in two separate comments - [LC-3] and [LC-4] - 
in our Disposition of Comments document.

Re LC-4, the DocumentTouch issue, as discussed on this thread, Matt 
submitted a changeset to address your comment and we noted you are OK 
with this solution.

Re LC-3, the initXXXEvent and constructor issue - Matt removed the 
initXXXEvent method from v1 and v2. For v1 we will not define any event 
constructor but we intend to do so for v2 (based on DOM4).

Please indicate if you are OK or not with our proposal for LC-3.

-Thanks, AB
