Hi all,

I just have some questions or comments about the new draft of the Mobile 
specification:
1) preserveAspectRatio values are limited in Tiny 1.2 like in its 
previous version. However, I don't think this limitation is required 
(images do support all the values of the preserveAspectRatio attribute). 
There is definitely no extra weight for the implementation, so why 
introduce this limitation?
2) A simplified version of the gradients appears in SVGT1.2, and I was 
wondering whether the WG considered to reduce the number of stops to two 
(0 and 100). It would make Tiny implementations faster/simpler/smaller. 
Is having several stops a common use case? If so, percentages are not 
costly to add.
3) I don't see anything mentioned about pointer-events (because the 
Attributes Index is not yet added I guess). I don't see any reason why 
it should not be in Tiny. In some circonstances and when correctly used, 
it can greatly improve the responsiveness of an SVG file.
4) When will the SVGT1.1 and SVGT1.2 test suites be published?

Thank you and regards,
Christophe Gillette
