Oops, that's the description of the EVI extension, which I failed to notice
had been placed in the XEvIE protocol README by mistake. Sorry about that.
The README has now been corrected in git:

Correct README to describe XEvIE instead of EVI extension
Yes, we had two little used extensions with very different
purposes but very similar names. Naming is hard.
While we're in here, document that this extension is no longer
supported in the Xserver.
