The latest draft actually notes "Non-interpolated (i.e. the calcMode is
discrete) path data animation is always possible." It is not clear to me
whether your response or the draft is in error. I also didn't understand
what "then the animation specification must be ignored as unsupported"
might mean.

This is actually not an absolute requirement in the draft but rather
an optional step which is then later an absolute requirement for the
SVGPath interface.
