[SVGMobile12] prefetch element too complicated

The allowed attributes for <prefetch> allow a very detailed description 
of the prefetch.  I have very little confidence that authors or content 
generation tools will be able to usefully set these, as generally they 
won't be aware of the memory, network, and other conditions that will be 
encountered when the content in being loaded.  This will likely wind up 
in implementations ignoring the detail and using the prefetch element as 
a boolean hint.  Why not just simplify the element to that level now?
