Nothing is certain except death and taxes. However, we were very happy
with the solidColor element; it was removed not because there was
anything wrong with it, but because we wanted to clearly differentiate
SVG 1.1 (SVG 1.0 features, with modularization for profiles) and SVG
1.2 (new features).

front matter of the document, look for the link 'previous version'.
You can follow a trail of previous versions back to the first
