Yes, there are no elements in SVG Tiny 1.2 that have that particular
restriction (can point to somewhere in the current document, outside the
current SVG fragment, but cannot point to a different document).

tref, in SVG Full, would be an example of an element that can point into
the current document but outside the current SVG fragment. On the other
hand, it can also point outside the current document as well, so it
would be listed as a yes in columns B and D.

If a particular element is restricted to linking to somewhere in the
current SVG document fragment and it links outside it, then it has
clearly not met the restriction.
