[SVGMobile12] SVGT12-207: Conformance requirements for preserveAspectRatio

Section 7.9 The preserveAspectRatio attribute is quite confused. This 
paragraph demonstrates what I mean:

# If the value of preserveAspectRatio on an element that references data 
# ('image', 'animation' and 'video') starts with 'defer' then the value of 
# the preserveAspectRatio attribute on the referenced content if present 
# should be used. If the referenced content lacks a value for 
# preserveAspectRatio then the preserveAspectRatio attribute should be 
# processed as normal (ignoring 'defer'). For preserveAspectRatio on all 
# other elements the 'defer' portion of the attribute is ignored.

(The three problems are two occurances of "should" which should be "must", 
and one occurance of "is" which should be "must" as well.)

This is just one example; the problem affects the entire section.

Please correct section 7.9 The preserveAspectRatio attribute so that it 
actually states conformance criteria in a coherent and testable fashion.
