As far as I can tell, there is a column missing (the one corresponding to 
"Reference a fragment within the current document but outside the current 
SVG document fragment".

An example would be, should the following consist an invalid IRI reference 
or not:

   <test>
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
     <g focusable="true" nav-next="url(#test)"/> <!-- Here -->
    </svg>
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
     <g focusable="true" xml:id="test"/>
    </svg>
   </test>

The current text doesn't say if that is invalid or not -- it says that it 
covers all the possibilities, but doesn't cover this one.

Another example would be:

   <test>
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:x="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
     <discard x:href="test"/>
    </svg>
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
     <g xml:id="test"/>
    </svg>
   </test>

(This example is especially ambiguous since the xlink:href="" attribute on 
the <discard> element is defined as taking an IRI reference, but the 
"target element" of the <discard> element is defined relative to an 
xlink:href="" attribute that has a different definition, and which says 
that the reference must be to the current SVG fragment.)
