This doesn't say whether the attribute is allowed or not, just what syntax must
be used if it is present.

Whether the attributes in question are allowed or not is up to the
specifications that define the elements in question (namely, SVG for SVG
elements, MathML for MathML elements, and HTML for HTML elements).

I've added a clarifying note to this effect.

>   Authors must not use the xml:base attribute in _HTML documents_.

This was written before HTML documents contained SVG and MathML nodes in the
text/html serialisation. I've updated this text to refer just to HTML elements.
