So you are saying that SVG's animation elements are inconsistent with
SMIL as they use SVG-defined symbols a context that would expect plain
event types per the SMIL Recommendations, and there is no requirement to
support namespaced events in SVG Tiny 1.2 for animation elements even
though there is a requirement to support such events for XML Events
facilities, a requirement so important that the Working Group has to
re-define XML Events in SVG Tiny 1.2 (and that even in a way that is
inconsistent with DOM Level 3 Events). That's clearly not satisfactory
to me then.
