Ian,
I just feel this is a good way to highlight that style sheets are also 
useful for graphics technologies like SVG.  I am not requesting new 
requirements or changes in checkpoints, just highlighting to readers that 
SVG is a technology that is included as part of 4.15.  Some people may not 
think of that when reading the document, especially since most of the other 
checkpoints deal with text styling and not graphics styling.

Jon
