That makes sense to me.

The W3C note http://www.w3.org/Math/Documents/Notes/graphics.xml#svg-in-mathml-guidelines also contains the "SVG1.1" value, but is it official?

I do not think this is official but making it present on a public document for a long time makes it inevitably used. So if there's an option to accept it when implementing, I'd go for that, especially since it's not ambiguous. 
TeX had far too many media-types, for example, spread around the world... (and none specified that I know of).
