Thanks for the pointer! I will point out that the document you referenced 
is not the SMIL 2.0 language spec but the SMIL 2.0 profile spec. My feeling 
is that SVG (as a host language for SMIL Timing) needs have similar 
language to the SMIL 2.0 profile spec, which I copy/paste here:

The SMIL 2.0 Language profile supports an extensible set of events. In 
order to resolve possible name conflicts with the events that are supported 
in this profile qualified event names are supported. Namespace prefixes are 
used to qualify the event names. As a result, the colon is reserved in 
begin and end attributes for qualifying event names.
