Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/ is unclear about
proper syntax for the 'data:' URL scheme, many SVG tools fail to specify
a proper media type for the data in which case the scheme defaults to
text/plain;charset=us-ascii which is hardly ever intended for resources
included in SVG documents. http://www.w3.org/2004/10/RecsFigure.svg is
an example for this. Please change the draft such that it is very clear
to authors and authoring tool developers that this is not acceptable and
that conforming user agents must not assume any other media type in this
