Orientation vs Tilt

Paolo Pinzuti in a recent private email suggested that Wacom would not be supporting orientation as distinct from tilt.

Reference: 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-InkML-20061023/#orientation
The third degree of freedom in orientation is generally defined as the rotation of the pen about its axis. This is potentially useful (in combination with tilt) in application such as illustration or calligraphy, and signature verification.
------------
Resolution: rejected
------------
The 'tilt' value is captured by the 'orientation channels' such as OTx and OTy. This fact is not otherwise mentioned explicitly in the specification document.

Use with SVG

1. How is it intended that InkML be used with SVG?
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-multimodal/2006Nov/0001.html

SVG isn't mentioned within the draft, and it would be useful to have 
at least one working example ~:" defining one means of relating SVG:animateTransform to InkML:Time Channel?

The working group will be aware that there has been some controversy and indeed confusion over the use of CSS within SVG**.

It is also proving difficult to easily validate mixed XML namespaces 
such as RDF within SVG.

Is the M-MWG in a position to broach these inter-disciplinary 
boundaries with signal examples?
------------
Resolution: accepted
------------
InkML can be annotated with SVG using the <annotationXML> construct.

No, they have not made any contributions.
