Section 4.3 of the Candidate Recommendation describes the interface
SVGNumberList as follows:

"The various methods inherited from SVGList, which are defined in SVGList
to accept parameters and return values of type Object, must receive
parameters of type float and return values of type float.
IDL Definition
interface SVGNumberList : SVGList {};"

This requires that float inherit from Object.   I'm not aware of any
language that allows fundamental primitives such as float to derive from
other types.  Ergo, it seems that this particular interface can't be
implemented as defined.  Was SVGNumberList actually intended to operate on
SVGNumber objects, not floats?
