I'm not sure what the ambiguity is.  The DOM3 Events drafy clearly says:

   The target's ancestors are determined before the initial dispatch of
   the event. If the target node is removed during the dispatching, or
   a target's ancestor is added or removed, the event propagation will
   always be based on the target node and the target's ancestors
   determined before the dispatch. [1]

DOM2 events has similar wording.

What's ambiguous?


the paragraph right after the "Note" about an SVG version of the image 
immediately above that being available.
