Wait, why? I think you could just put all the custom events in the "main" events.xml.append file. I'm saying this because I've never heard of custom-named files being able to be appended.
There should be no problem if you just put all your events in one file that already exists. You'd still have to make an .append file for each race's events to add the call for your own events, but i'm pretty sure you can put them in any other file.
events.xml.append is possibly the best one!
In case you don't know, I made a "mod" that helps people test things like these. You can get to its thread by clicking on the fed bomber in my signature. Feel free to "steal" some code and adapt it for your purposes if you think it can help you!
I mean, i'm pretty sure you'll find something useful in it! I suggest you to get the v2 beta version (the one with the blue-ish links), for its code is the most optimised. >_>
