Sorry, that paragraph is meant to refer to script functions, not to events. I concede that it would not be a good idea to change the naming convention for events.

I appreciate the point you're making, but I resist this change.  It would
require extensive alterations (pretty much all event names, for starters)
and result in a style that to my eye would be jarring, given how used I am
to the current style.
