Hi,

"Yes, there's interest, even inside the WG. What is difficult is that at

some point we have to stop adding features and finish the spec!"

I have to agree on getting the spec done.  My customers are getting
scared, they are starting to think SVG is dead because they have not
seen any movement in a long time!

We can't have everything!  Let's just get it finished.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Regards

Yes, there's interest, even inside the WG. What is difficult is that at 
some point we have to stop adding features and finish the spec!

By "very serious issue" are you saying that we might get Last Call 
comments telling us some parts of the spec aren't really useful unless 
you have grids or something like that?
