Really?

See http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.1F2/errata/errata.xml#font_module_add_fontface (adds 'font-face' to SVG.Font.class in the spec).

I think the DTD was correct, http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/svgdtd.html has 'font' and 'font-face' in SVG.Font.class as it should be, and SVG.Font.class seems to be included in all the elements that should have it (though it's not in SVG.Structure.class).
