Yes, you do talk about the current SVG document fragment of a node. Are 
you suggesting the name of this term should change?

Perhaps but, I think this is needed to make it clear that only the 
elements defined by the W3C SVG language are acceptable.

Yes, thats what I believe. How's this:

    current SVG document fragment
    The current SVG document fragment of a element is the XML document
    sub-tree which starts with the ancestor 'svg'
    <cid:part1.06080305.01090602@cisra.canon.com.au> element. For this
    to be a valid current SVG document fragement all container elements
    between the 'svg' <cid:part1.06080305.01090602@cisra.canon.com.au>
    and this element must be elements in the SVG language and namespace.

Yes, I agree, thanks. I have made that change.
