Well, yes, transitively.  For that matter, *any* XML document (okay,
except SOAP ones) can contain a DOCTYPE declaration, and therefore can
contain LEIRIs.  But I am talking about which specifications should
mention LEIRIs.

If SVG inherits its links from XLink and its base URI specifier from XML
Base, then SVG documents can contain LEIRIs.  But that doesn't mean that
SVG should *specify* LEIRIs.  Nor does it mean that a spec which refers
*directly* to URIs or IRIs should be made to refer to LEIRIs, either.
That last is the key point.

"Why is that?" the woman inquired.
"Because I just made that word up", the Master said wisely.
