We are, you said the W3C Markup Validator does not need to be changed
in order to comply with the proposed image/svg+xml registration which
however states that

  The encoding of an SVG document is determined by the XML encoding
  declaration. This has identical semantics to the application/xml media
  type in the case where the charset parameter is omitted, as specified
  in RFC3023 sections 8.9, 8.10 and 8.11. 

which is inconsistent with the behavior of the W3C Markup Validator.
>From the proposed registration it seems very clear that the behavior
of the W3C Markup Validator is non-conforming, you say it is never-
theless conforming which makes no sense to me.
