As a reminder, the syntax {new Option()} (Netscape DOM) is deprecated to the
syntax {document.createElement("OPTION")} (W3C DOM).  The requested syntax
{new Event()} would be inconsistent with that design decision.  OTOH, the
syntax {new XMLHTTPRequest()} has already been adopted, perhaps because
{document.createXMLHTTPRequest()} would be too specific?
A bit confused,
