> In the first sentence, the words "complete document" seems to imply that an (XML) document can be referenced from an image element while the second sentence says the opposite. Could you rephrase ?
I suggest the following editing. Replace:
"The 'image'  element indicates that the contents of a complete document are to be rendered into a given rectangle within the current user coordinate system."
with
"The 'image'  element indicates that the contents of an image are to be rendered into a given rectangle within the current user coordinate system."

> The attribute definitions for the 'image' element does not use the usual 'lacuna value sentence' for x, y, width and height.
For x, y, width and height, replace:
"If the attribute is not specified, the effect is as if a value of "0" were specified."
with
"The lacuna value is '0'."

> Could you rephrase the following sentence? It does not look like a correct sentence: 
> "For optimizing download time by requiring a particular content format authors are encouraged to use 'requiredFormats', instead of 'type'."
In image, audio, video, replace:
"For optimizing download time by requiring a particular content format authors are encouraged to use 'requiredFormats', instead of 'type'."
with
"To indicate the media formats and avoid that a User Agent downloads media in formats that it does not support, authors are encouraged to use 'requiredFormats' instead of 'type'."
