Hello SVG WG,

We had a SVG IG JP meeting yesterday with the presence of Doug Schepers.
Doug talked a bit about the plan that SVG WG will work on SVG Core 2.0 next
year.

A guy responsible for SVG JIS standard is concerned that SVG Tiny 1.2
might be misunderstood as a short term solution by many people, and this
is not good in convincing JIS committee of the importance of SVG JIS
standardization based on SVG Tiny 1.2 REC.

After the meeting, I talked with the SVG JIS guy. Most of all, he was
not happy with the fact that the name, "SVG Tiny" will be replaced by
"SVG Core" in near future. This gives impression that there are major
incompatibility and lack of synchronization between JIS and W3C REC. 

Here is my suggestion to the WG. Please consider a possibility to change
the name of the spec from "SVG Tiny 1.2" to "SVG Core 1.2" when we go to
PR. I personally think "SVG Core" is a more appropriate name for the
spec. "SVGMobile12" in URI can be changed to "SVGCore12" as well, so
that you can just use "SVGCore" to refer to the current SVG Core spec.
