Actually, comments like "Yes! We wants it! Itss our preciousss!" are
very much the sort of thing we need to hear at this stage. 

If you (or anyone) have any suggestions about how "render arbitrary XML"
might actually work or can supply more detailed feature requirements,
please send them in. In the absence of suggestions from the public, the
working group will do its best on its own to come up with a sketch of an
initial proposal, and this initial proposal most likely will appear in
the next working draft (1-3 months away?). In the meantime, if we can
think of productive questions to ask, we'll send those questions to the
community to gauge community interest and requirements as best as we
can.

Subject: 1.2 feedback: generalities


Hi,

I don't have all that much feedback but I will fragment most of it over
several 
posts so as to specialise the threads.

My first reaction after reading the 1.2 WD: this is all very exciting,
and I 
really look forward to the fascinating stuff that will become possible
with 1.2.

My second reaction though is: I know this is the first WD, but I do find
it a 
bit short (ie not detailed enough). The reason for this is not that I
find it 
lacking in content per se, but that some parts aren't detailed enough
for one to 
provide useful feedback. An example of this is section "2.4 Rendering
Arbitrary 
XML". That's a bit that is very dear to me as it pretty much describes
the 
better part of my experience with SVG but those few paragraphs are not
enough to 
allow me to provide any feedback beyond "Yes! We wants it! Itss our
preciousss!"

I suspect that other SVG users may feel the same, for this part of for
others. I 
am mostly stating this because the tone of the document would seem to
indicate 
that one of its major goals is feedback. If that's not the case then I
guess 
this comment does not apply ;)

Apart from that, great job!
