    You can reference other documents but you must 'directly
reference' one of the valid elements.  So you can't reference just the
SVG document or the root SVG element.

RD> What is a direct reference?  What is a indirect reference?

    <g id="foo">
       <rect id="bar" ...>

    xlink:href="#foo" would be an indirect reference to a rect.
    xlink:href="#bar" would be a direct reference to a rect.

    This is ment to mirror the text for the existing clipPath (14.3.5)
element with child 'use' elements.
