Okay, the new example addresses my concern then, thanks.

If you add baseProfile="tiny" the example would be non-compliant as SVG
Tiny 1.1 does not allow the onclick attribute on <rect>. And turning it
into a SVG Basic 1.1 document does not seem useful to me; but even then,
SVG 1.1 does not mandate the 'document' object the example uses... So I
think adopting my example is best.
