Hello,

I am woundering if SVG spec has any statements that make sure there are no new extention to the SVG namespace? Is there a mechanism in SVG that allows extenstions ?

I am reading XSLT spec when I came across this statement:
(end of second paragraph)
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-xslt20-20021115/Overview-diff.html#xslt-namespace 

<snip>
  Implementations must not extend the XSLT namespace with additional elements or attributes. Instead, any extension must be in a separate namespace. Any namespace that is used for additional instruction elements must be identified by means of the extension instruction mechanism specified in 18.2 Extension Instructions.
</snip>

http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-xslt20-20021115/Overview-diff.html#extension-instruction 

Does SVG 1.1 modules or SVG 2.0 have such a mechanism ? 

We all learn by sharing what we know
