XML Events basically come in handy when you want a generic markup-
based way to add event listeners for custom events. For instance, if
XBL was implemented in WebKit, and I had my own custom magic UI
control implemented with some custom XML element, I'll likely want to
fire custom DOM Events, and XML Events would be a neat way for users
of my widget to listen to some of these custom events without
resorting to a purely script-based approach using addEventListener().
It's a lot of ifs, but if WebKit ever supports XBL and custom DOM
Events, then it'd be worth re-thinking the usefulness of XML Events in
