W3C Working Group and SVG community,

I understand that the following SVG elements establish a new viewport

>svg
>symbol
>image
>marker
>pattern
>foreignObject

but as usual... my tedious questioning and literal take on reading the 
specification leads me to ask another question....

is there something different about these elements the also establish new 
viewports....

g
def
use
switch
mask
filter
feImage
a
font
glyph
missing-glyph

just trying to get my thoughts straight about how this second group of SVG 
elements ties into the first group....or do they at all?

please reference:
www.w3.org/TR/2000/CR-SVG-20001102/coords.html#EstablishingANewViewport

this section seems to ignore the secound group of elements that I have 
pointed out.

Thank you for your time.....I sorry if I ask such daft question :-)

We all learn by sharing what we know
