ISSUE-2259 (inconsistent-uri-type): Inconsistent use of <uri> symbol [SVG Full 1.1]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2259

Raised by: Cameron McCormack
On product: SVG Full 1.1

In SVG 1.1, the <uri> grammar symbol is used in two inconsistent ways.  It used as the value of the xlink:href="" attribute, for example, where the attribute is meant to contain just the bare URI.  It is also used in the grammar for various properties, such as 'clip-path', where it really needs to have "url(" ")" around it.

Either the property definitions need to be updated to include the "url(" ")" parts explicitly, or <uri> needs to be split into two grammar symbols: one with "url(" ")" and one without.
