Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  From http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/linking.html
section 14.1.1

  local IRI references, where the IRI reference does not contain an
  <absoluteIRI> or <relativeIRI> and thus only contains a fragment
  identifier (i.e., #<elementID>)) 

It is highly unclear what this means. The symbols <absoluteIRI> and
<relativeIRI> are not defined anywhere and if e.g. irelative-ref is
meant to be referred to (as defined in RFC 3987) the grammar would
not work the way it is assumed to work. It is thus unclear whether
http://example.org/ with "http://example.org/#x" is a "local IRI
reference" or not.

Please change the draft to be clear about these matters. Further,
same-document references (the proper term for "local IRI references",
I suspect), in the context of xml:base processing have been source of
much confusion and there are changes to RFC3986 on these matters which
make this section further unclear. Please change the draft such that it
uses proper terminology and clearly explains processing in context of
