W3C Editor and Working Team,

In section 5.1.2 The 'svg' element
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/struct.html#SVGElement

In the section called "Attribute definitions:

the "width" and "height" attribute definitions it would be nice if a link to
7.2 The initial viewport.

7.2 states:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/coords.html#ViewportSpace

<snip>
In some circumstances, SVG content will be embedded in or referenced
by a containing document. This containing document might include
attributes, properties and/or other parameters (explicit or implicit)
which specify or provide hints about the dimensions of the viewport
for the SVG content. SVG content itself optionally can provide
information about the appropriate viewport region for the content
via the width and height XML attributes on the outermost 'svg' element.
</snip>

It would make the specification more useful to developers, if the 
specification
pointed out......(link or description) ......what 7.2 states.

Look forward to the Rec :-)

We all learn by sharing what we know
