Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  In http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/types.html the
<iri> data type is not properly defined. The draft refers to this type
for both the CSS url() functional notation as well as literals. It is
also unclear how SVG Tiny 1.2 is in a position to re-define normative
dependencies like CSS 2.0 which does not allow anything but URIs in the
url() notation, and other specifications like xml:base and XLink 1.0
do not use IRIs either (and IRIs are incompatible with their URI I18N
mechanisms). Please change the draft such that there are different data
types for IRI literals and IRIs in url() and precisely explain the im-
pact of SVG's re-definition of its normative dependencies in this
