Dear Synchronized Multimedia Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/PR-SMIL2-20050927/ has two references to the
SMIL Animation Recommendation,

  When an element's active duration ends, it may be frozen at the final
  state, or it may no longer be presented (i.e., its effect is removed
  from the presentation). Freezing an element extends it, using the
  final state defined in the last instance of the simple duration. This
  can be used to fill gaps in a presentation, or to extend an element as
  context in the presentation (e.g. with additive animation - see


  For most continuous media, this aligns to the internal media model,
  and so no frames (or audio samples) are ever excluded. However for
  sampled timeline media (like animation), the distinction is important,
  and requires a specific semantic for elements that are frozen.

    * If the active duration is an even multiple of the simple duration,
      the media to show when frozen is the last frame (or last value)
      defined for the simple duration. 

  The effect of this semantic upon animation functions is detailed in
  the [SMIL-ANIMATION] module.

It seems in both cases SMIL 2.1 is a better reference and the references
should be changed accordingly.
