Some may be invalid, but they can only fix them if you list the URLs, 
and it might also help to include the validity related error messages 
you see.

But you're complaining to the wrong people.
You describe a problem with
http://validator.w3.org/ ,
so please report that issue (in more detail) at
http://validator.w3.org/feedback.html .

The single SVG document from the spec you list is valid.

Results from the validators listed on
http://www.pinkjuice.com/check/ :

It also is valid against

http://www3.sppd.ne.jp/lena/relax-ng/svg11/ :

C:\del>jing svg11/svg11.rng rect01.svg

... and the local versions of the validators also say it's valid:

C:\del>rxp -V -N -s -x rect01.svg
C:\del>xmllintval --nowarning rect01.svg
C:\del>domcount rect01.svg

Warning at file http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg-style.mod, 
line 74, char 22
   Message: Attribute 'xml:space' has already been declared for element 

Errors occurred, no output available


[the above is a warning, not an error]
