You're right, we can't stop anyone using the string "SVG" as
the first thing in their own FPI. As you suggest, we are just saying
that SVG Host Language documents should start with "SVG", but the
other W3C SVG document types should not. I'll try to make this clearer.

Actually this text is lifted from XHTML Modularization, so I guess
they may have the same problem.

Whoops! Yes, they are very wrong.
