Hi all,

I looked into the SVG print LC WD and did not find anything we need to 
comment on. There are examples with a <text> element like
 <text ...>Hello, out there</text>
but this is from the SVG namespace and not defined in the SVG print spec.

Nevertheless, we might comment on SVG Tiny. See


I think the following elements could use ITS local markup: <metadata> , 
<text> , <desc>, <title>, <tspan>

Technically speaking, ITS can be used already in SVG, see

[[SVG allows inclusion of elements from foreign namespaces anywhere with 
the SVG content. In general, the SVG user agent will include the unknown 
elements in the DOM but will otherwise ignore unknown elements. (The 
notable exception is described under Embedding Foreign Object Types.)
Extension elements in the SVG namespace must not be used.
Additionally, SVG allows inclusion of attributes from foreign namespaces 
on any SVG element. The SVG user agent will include unknown attributes 
in the DOM but will otherwise ignore unknown attributes.Unprefixed 
attributes on elements in the SVG namespace must not be used for 

We still might propose to mention ITS explicitly, for the  important use 
case of  i18n / l10n.
