i might be persuaded to consider an informative note, such as:
*Note:* In the context of the subset of SMIL semantics supported by this
specification, the active duration of an element that specifies both end and
dur attributes is equal to the lesser of the value of the dur attribute and
the difference between the value of the end attribute and the element's
begin time.
