Hello Andrew,

You were asking whether SVG was based on the infoset (which it is,
being based on XML) and whether an SVG scripter would require to
understand the infoset or just use the DOM (i replied the latter).

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2002May/0049.html

I also pointed out that, since SVG 1.1 is defined using (modularized)
DTDs not modularized schemas, there is no PSVGI and thus, an SVG
scripter does not have to understand it.

It was not clear if you were suggesting that a future version of the
SVG spec:
a) should use the PSVI
b) should not use the PSVI

or whether you were just checking that the PSVI was not required
readnig for 1.1 scripting. Anyway, if your question was about 1.1 then
I can confirm that the DOM is still the API used to access the
document and that the PSVI is still not required for this.
