Doug,

thanks for that, but it isn't clear why this is considered a "painting 
enhancement"
this didn't jump out as obvious, as I searched before asking.
do you have a rational explanation?

The 1.2 draft pretty clearly says:

"11.12 Increased switch availability
SVG 1.2 allows the switch element as a child of any element."
