Dear SVG Working Group,

I wanted to do a full review of SVG 1.2 [1], but I have limited my 
analysis to the 9 ***simple*** mandatory requirements of Specification 
Guidelines. It's one of the worse specifications it has been given me 
to read for a while.

The prose is certainly interesting and gives maybe wonderful 
capabilities to the new SVG, but the articulation of everything which 
is given in the specification is not existent at all. Please do modify 
your document. Even simple rules of Manual of style are not enforced.

I'm very sorry to sound so negative, but the document is indeed very 
bad. Specifically when I was used to a production which had in the past 
a very high level of quality.

I'm ready to spend a bit of time to explain the points I have made in 
the review. If you wish I sent to the mailing-list each individual 
issues in separate mails. I'm willing to do that to help you to keep 
record of issues.
