I'm probably a bit late on this, but:
Please consider removing the need for a user to know about the "domain
suffixes" (which, as far as I know are 24x7 specific).
If anyone else ever wants to add firmware/hardware/kernel provided
event descriptions, they'll need to special case these ones as they
don't match up with the actual event names.
