I had not; thanks for pointing it out.

By the way, the SVG 1.1 Second Edition spec (as well as the Web IDL and 
HTML5 specs) use small amounts of JS to enhance their presentation, but 
they are presentable just fine without them.

Recent pubrules (a couple of months back?) allow SVG and MathML in specs 
now, as long as there is a fallback.  The use of MathJax is an 
acceptable fallback IMO.

I similarly replaced a couple of PNG figures directly with their SVG 
versions, referenced by <img>.  I haven't added in the fallback yet.  My 
feeling is that using SVG 1.1 (without filters, and perhaps without SMIL 
animation) should be acceptable for diagrams/examples in the SVG 2 spec.
