The term we will use is "rootmost svg element".  
Each instance of the term (which replaces all uses of "outermost svg element", 
"root-most svg element", "root svg", etc.) now points to the Definitions section,
which defines it as:

rootmost svg element
    
    The furthest 'svg' <http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Group/repository/spec/mobile/1.2/1.2NG/master/struct.html#SVGElement> ancestor element that does not exit an SVG context.
    
    Note that this definition has been carefully chosen to be applicable not
    only to SVG Tiny 1.2 (where the rootmost svg element is the only svg element,
    except when there is an svg element inside a foreignObject) but also for SVG
    Full 1.2 and SVG that uses sXBL.
    See also SVG document fragment <http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Group/repository/spec/mobile/1.2/1.2NG/master/intro.html#TermSVGDocumentFragment>.

Thank you for your feedback. Please let us know if this does not address 
your concerns.

Andrew.
