Oh, I understand that. The reason for my post is that the current SVG
spec uses the symbol


in two different ways. In other words, you can't have a single grammar
that describes a <uri>, because there are actually two different things
that the spec calls <uri>.

I think it would be better if the spec used distinct symbols to
represent the two different interpretations.
