SVG Tiny 1.2 does not allow the inline-block value for the display
attribute and my issue is not about some white space normalization.
It's clear from the draft that for

  <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
       baseProfile="tiny"
       version="1.2">
    <g display="block" />
  </svg>

the computed value of the display property is "block", that the
getTrait method for the "display" on the g element would return
"block" and that getAttributeNS for the display attribute on the
same element would return "block".

The only problem is that the trait table suggests that "block"
will *not* be returned by getTrait. That's incorrect as long as
the draft is not changed to allow or require different behavior.
The draft of course should not be changed to this effect.
