Is there a spec for how the event handler content attributes (with
reflection) work in SVG? In any event I haven't intended any changes
here, whatever is already implemented sounds good. If implementations
disagree, then getting agreement and a spec for it seems orthogonal to
which interface the IDL attributes sit on.
