In the WD of 2000/03/03, Section 3.2 defines SVGList as operating on items
of type Object.  Section 12.3 defines SVGICCColor as containing an
attribute 'colors' of type SVGList, with each item in the list being an
"arbitrary floating point number".   In both Java and C++, floats are
considered primitive types and do not therefore derive from any base
types.  Can implementers safely interpret "an arbitrary floating point
number" as meaning an object represention of a float e.g. SVGNumber,
instead of a float primitive type?  If not, then can you provide a clearer
definition of type 'Object'?
