Dear Ian,

Such an extreme message does not help the discussion.
Besides, in the paragraph 2 of the section you quote, I read: "All 
chapters are normative except for specific sections marked as being 
informative. "
The sentence I quoted was in an unmarked, hence normative paragraph.
At best, there is a contradiction in the SVG spec. But it is *not* as 
clear as you both pretend.
Regards
JC
