Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  In http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-SVG12-20041027/ the "XML" value for
the attributeType attribute on animation elements is defined as

  This specifies that the value of "attributeName" is the name of an XML
  attribute defined in the default XML namespace for the target element.
  If the value for attributeName has an XMLNS prefix, the implementation
  must use the associated namespace as defined in the scope of the
  target element. The attribute must be defined as animatable in this

Please replace "defined in the default XML namespace for the target
element" by "in no namespace".

The proposed QName resolution is inconsistent with SMIL Animation,
SMIL 2.0, SMIL 2.1, the draft itself, and does not make much sense.
Please change the algorithm to consider the in-scope prefixes of the
animation element rather than the prefixes of the target element.
