So one always talks about the "current SVG document fragment" of some specific 
node, then?  Perhaps that should be made clear in the naming.

"language and" above is redundant, I think.

It seems that there can be no "current SVG document fragment" for a node (eg if 
its parent is not in the SVG namespace).  Perhaps this should be said explicitly?

"An XML document sub-tree whose root is an 'svg' element" would make more sense, 
I think -- there can be more than one in a document, and "starts with" is not as 
clear to me as "whose root", though that may just be me.  With that change, this 
sounds great.
