SVG-ISSUE-2395 (foreign content as graphics): Define 'graphics element' to include all rendering content, such as HTML and MathML [SVG 2]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2395

Raised by: Doug Schepers
On product: SVG 2

Currently, many things are defined in terms of how they affect or are effected by "graphics elements", which are explicitly defined as ‘circle’, ‘ellipse’, ‘image’, ‘line’, ‘path’, ‘polygon’, ‘polyline’, ‘rect’, ‘text’ and ‘use’.

We should consider how other rendering elements, such as HTML or MathML in <foreignObject> or namespaced content, fit into that definition.

The easiest solution is probably to simply refer instead to "rendering element content" or something, or to add those kinds of content to the definition for "graphics elements", but it would be a good idea to discuss any non-obvious ramifications of that.
