Why does SVG need to talk about the LEIRIs in XLinks and xml:base
attributes?  (Rather than just talking about the XLinks and xml:base
attributes themselves.)

If it does, and refers to them as IRIs, it won't be any more or less
wrong after XLink and XML Base switch to referring to LEIRIs, since
they are *already* LEIRIs, just not so-named.
