Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/ does not make much
sense with respect to XML 1.0 vs XML 1.1. For conformance it is required
that only XML 1.1 can be used to author SVG content, yet all examples in
the draft are XML 1.0 documents and thus non-conforming. Support for XML
1.1 is also not required from "Conforming SVG Viewers" such that it is
essentially impossible to create conforming and interoperable content.

Some sections also refer to certain aspects of XML 1.0 rather than
depend on the XML version of the document, for example, some things are
defined to be XML Names without saying under which definition (there are
four) or if an attempt is made to discuss it, XML 1.0 is referenced
which means that XML 1.1 is of little use. Please subsantively revise
the draft in this regard (as I've requested before...)

regards.
