No, it's not. The SVG spec clearly states what is normative (see SVG Tiny 
1.2 appendix D section 2 paragraph 1). The issue of the SVG 1.2 Tiny spec 
not clearly stating what was normative or not was one of the many issues 
raised in the last few last calls (see e.g. SVGT12-163). The SVG working 
group stated they had resolved these issues by updating "the entire 
specification to ensure properly worded conformance criterias".

By the working group's own assertion, therefore, the sentence you cited is 
not normative. Bjoern's point stands.
