UI Events

So I just went through
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/d4e/raw-file/tip/source_respec.htm and it does
not seem to actually define the events, it just defines event
constructors. Isn't the goal of this specification to replace the
non-Core part of DOM3 Events?

My main request was namely about what kind of hook would be desired in
DOM for UI Events to be able to deal with the requirements from
<iframe seamless>. With that features events will be dispatched along
a chain that encompasses two or more disjoint trees. Each such tree
will have its own event object and its own "target" for which the
event attributes on the event object need to be adjusted. E.g.
UIEvent.view should probably point to the Window associated with
target's node document and coordinates of mouse events need to be
adjusted, including for synthetic events.

See also https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18780 for some
additional context.
