The implementation cost for viewers that should support SVG 1.1 and SVG
Tiny 1.2 content is increased as they would have to support two methods
and a new attribute rather than just the two methods, and script authors
who would like to write their content such that it works in both SVG 1.1
and SVG Tiny 1.2 implementations will have to write multiple code paths
in order to use this facility, so this is not acceptable to me.
