It seems http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2005May/0120 this
got "fixed" twice... I think the new text is incorrect, for example, in
<text>&#xF6;</text> there is no "character data" as defined in XML 1.0,
only markup. There is similar text in the draft like e.g.

  The XML [XML10] character data within the 'text' element, along with
  relevant attributes and properties and character-to-glyph mapping
  tables within the font itself, define the glyphs to be rendered.

  'editable' is now allowed on text elements with children,
  but the children are flattened when editing occurs

it also seems that the "editable" attribute's scope extends beyond
character information items, it should probably just refer to the
content of elements.

I am not sure about this "can be edited by the user" either; W3C Amaya
allows to edit element content regardless of the editable attribute;
is Amaya non-compliant?
