Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/svgudom.html fails
to state that the normative definition of features is the corresponding
DOM specification. This causes a number of subtle problems, readers are
likely not to refer to the real definition of these features and thus
miss important information. For example, for getElementById the draft
fails to note that "id" attributes are not of type ID unless so defined.
Many SVG implementations fail to take that into account and simply
consider all "id" attributes to be of type ID. Please change the draft
such that it is clear where to find the normative definition of these
features and how to decide whether differences are errors or meant to
be a "subset" of the feature.
