The SVG Tiny 1.2 specification says:

# For bidirectional text, the user agent must support text selection in 
# logical order [...]

This is an inappropriate requirement. Usability testing may discover that 
this is not the optimal text selection mechanism, or that providing this 
text selection mechanism causes user harm.

Please remove the requirement quoted above and let user agents implement 
whatever UI is found to be most appropriate in usability testing.
