The XLink specification defines any element to have various XLink 
attributes with various allowed values.

The SVG Tiny 1.2 specification is incompatible with the XLink 
specification in that it further limits what values authors may specify.

However, it is unclear what XLink-aware user agents should do when faced 
with SVG Tiny 1.2 content that explicitly sets the XLink attributes, 
especially now that no DTD is used and therefore the XLink attributes 
don't normally have their correct values.

Please clearly define, for all SVG elements, how XLink attributes must be 
treated when they do not have their expected values. If this behaviour 
does not map to the behaviour allowed by XLink (e.g. if it is a subset), 
please clarify why SVG Tiny 1.2 requires non-conformance to the XLink 
specification.
