DOM2 WD and Events

I've just been skimming over the DOM2 Working Draft
(http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-DOM-Level-2/), and am particularly
interested in the event model as it provides a lot of
additional power, as now I'll be able to make different components
of my application aware of changes to the DOM made by other
aspects. This will help to cleanly modularise many XML applications.
What surprised me into making this posting is the presence of
User Interface events in the DOM2 model. I guess my question is :
Why? Is it just to make the browser integration that much
I'd have thought that was an application level problem and
not something that the DOM would need to be worried about.
>From looking at the list, I'd have thought that with the
possible addition of a 'selection' mutation event, it would
be possible to map any user interface event to something
understandable by the DOM.
Awaiting enlightment ;)
