Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/animate.html is
unclear about animation that involves indirect values such as the
currentColor keyword for color properties. Existing implementations
are not interoperable for e.g.

  <rect color="green" fill="#000000" height="100" width="100">
    <animateColor attributeName="fill"
                  from="#000000" to="currentColor"
                  begin="0s" dur="3s" fill="freeze" />
  </rect>

Some will consider this illegal and perform no animation at all,
some consider this is discrete animation, and some do something
weird. Please change the draft such that processing for this case
is well-defined.

regards,
