ISSUE-2159 (InvPath): Invalid path data error/unsupported [Last Call: SVG 1.2 Tiny ]

There’s a small inconsistency with how invalid path data is treated.  In
the Paths chapter, it is an unsupported value:

  Values of the ‘d’ that do not match the EBNF are treated as
  unsupported.
   — http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.2T/publish/paths.html#PathDataBNF

In the Implementation Notes appendix, it says it is an error:

  Unrecognized contents within a path data stream (i.e., contents that
  are not part of the path data grammar) must be considered an error.
   — http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.2T/publish/paths.html#PathElementImplementationNotes

Unless there are any objections, I will make the Implementation Notes
reiterate that invalid path data is considered to be an unsupported
value.
