[SVG 1.0] 16.4 Pointer events

Section 16.4 ("Pointer events") contains the following sentence:
After an event is initially dispatched to a particular element, unless
an appropriate action has been taken to prevent further processing
(e.g., by invoking the preventCapture() or preventBubble() DOM method
call), the event will be passed to the appropriate event handlers (if
any) for that element's ancestors (in the case of event bubbling) or
that element's descendants (in the case of event capture) for further

DOM 2 Events [1] does not contain such methods.
preventCapture/preventBubble are accomplished using stopPropagation.
