forwarding custom events from view

I have some events that i dispatch in my view, now I also want to use this custom events outside of the view in a command.
What I came up with is a forward function, that dispatches the event again:
my Mediator:

    public override function onRegister():void {
        addViewListener( SomeEvent.TYPE, forward )
        addViewListener( SomeOtherEvent.TYPE, forward )

    public function forward(e:Event):void {

this works, but seems kinda wrong.
So, is this best practice or how would you "forward" these events?
Or should I listen to the flash-events that the gui throws (mostly MouseEvent.CLICK...) and create my events in the mediator (which means I need to put some more logic in the mediator which also feels wrong)?

    Hello andreas,

    What you have to do is:
    addViewListener( SomeEvent.TYPE, dispatch)
    I.e. you don't need this forward method. Just pass the dispatch method as a handler.

    And have in mind that you should override the clone method in your custom events.
