Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  In http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-SVG12-20041027/painting.html the
definition of the rendering-color-space property seems weird. For
example, it lists an scRGB value that is not listed as legal value.
Please change the draft to list only legal values.

The definition of a <name> seems inconsistent with a broad range of
properties; the typical processing when a specific value is not
supported is to ignore the declaration while the draft proposed to
assume a specific default value. This makes it impossible to use
e.g.

  svg
  {
    rendering-color-space: url(...);
    rendering-color-space: <name>;
  }

Please change the draft to require implementations to ignore values
they do not support. Finally, I am not sure it makes much sense to
let the property inherit, this would only ever be relevant if it is
either defined that current in-scope declarations apply to external
content or in a compound document environment where there are multiple
"outermost SVG elements", it might be more reasonable to let it not
inherit.
