"Which one of the following is correct?
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 20010904//EN"

<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN"


This is a good one (considering the announcement of the 
recommendation is still hot from the oven).

Actually BOTH the FPIs "-//W3C//DTD SVG 20010904//EN"
[1] and "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN" [2] are mentioned in the 

Since in both cases the System Identifier is identical (the URI 
specified in the system literal is same, the resource is the same 
file), I would conclude that the SVG FPI is not canonical.

I realize that this does not answer your question, only inflates it.
