Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-sXBL-20040901 is not really clear what
would happen in terms of actual rendering (if this is allowed) for a
case such as 

  <svg:svg
    xmlns:svg = "http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
    xmlns:xbl = "http://www.w3.org/2004/xbl"
    xmlns:tla = "http://www.example.com/tla"
    version   = "1.2"
    viewBox   = "0 0 100 100"
  >
    <svg:defs><xbl:xbl><xbl:definition element="tla:x"
    ><xbl:template>&#x308;</xbl:template></xbl:definition
    ></xbl:xbl></svg:defs>

    <svg:text y='50' font-size='12'>Bjo<tla:x/>rn</svg:text>
  
  </svg:svg>

It appears to be legal and various renderings make sense, so this should
be clearly defined in the specification. Please update the specification
to discuss this case, ideally including an example. If the existing text
disallows this case, please change the specification so that it is more 
obvious.

regards.
