Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  From http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/extend.html
section 19.2

[...]
  The contents of 'foreignObject' are assumed to be from a different
  namespace. Any SVG elements within a 'foreignObject' will not be
  drawn, except in the situation where a properly defined SVG
  subdocument with a proper xmlns (see "Namespaces in XML 1.1" [XML-NS])
  attribute specification is embedded recursively.
[...]

This seems to allow

  <svg ...>
     <foreignObject ...>
       <svg ...>

which seems prohibed by the schema. Please change the draft such that
it is clear whether this is allowed and if it is, please change other
parts of the draft accordingly.

This "proper xmlns attribute specification" seems weird, please change
the draft such that it uses more appropriate terminology.

regards.
