[SVGMobile12] SVGT12-207: <title> does not define what the title is

Please add some text to the specification that defines what an
element's title is. The current specification defines that a user can
use <title> elements to set the title, and that the UA can use <title>
elements to get the title, but does not define exactly how the title
is actually obtained.

For example, in these snippets (none of which are "in error"):

   <svg:title> Hello World </svg:title>
   <svg:title> Hello <svg:defs>World</svg:defs> </svg:title>
   <svg:title> <html:p>Hello World</html:p> </svg:title>
   <svg:title> Hello <html:noscript>World</html:noscript> </svg:title>

...what should the UA use as the text?

The same applies to <desc> and the description.
