I stand corrected, thanks... that wasn't obvious from the VoiceXML homepage.

I'm actually very encouraged that VoiceXML uses DOM3 Events... my 
previous impression from visiting VoiceXML and MMI events was that it 
didn't do so.

I see that VoiceXML uses the DOM event flow model (minus capture 
phase?), and the Event, EventTarget, EventListener interface from DOM3 
Events, but I don't see any explicit use of any of the other interfaces 
or event types.  I do see it has a <submit> element, but no mention of a 
'submit' event.  Is that correct?

We are hoping to take DOM3 Events to Last Call in November, and we would 
much rather have major issues resolved before then, including comments 
from the XForms and VoiceXML folks.  So, I would very much appreciate 
review and feedback of the Editor's Draft [1].
