Hello WG.

In the Implementation Notes appendix, it says:

  User agents must only consider elements explicitly placed in the SVG
  namespace by XML Namespace declarations in the document (e.g.,
  <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">) as being SVG elements.
   —– http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.2T/publish/implnote.html#VersionControl

This ignores elements created using the uDOM.  I suggest this be
reworded as follows:

  When parsing a document, SVG user agents must only consider elements
  explicitly placed in the SVG namespace by XML namespace declarations
  in the document (e.g., <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">) as
  being SVG elements.  Similarly, any elements created with the
  Document::createElementNS() uDOM method must have had the SVG
  namespace passed as the namespaceURI parameter for it to be considered
  to be an SVG element.

Thanks,

Cameron
