Then I don't understand the question.

As a further point, in SMIL Animation (which is what SVG 1.1 uses) there 
is also the sentence "a discrete to animation will simply set the "to" 
value for the simple duration" [1], so even in that version the 
semantics were already there.  Why these semantics are like this, I 
don't know.  I didn't follow the animation discussions very carefully at 
the time.
