Please consider me dissatisfied with this response; a data object cannot
be a XML 1.0 document and a XML 1.1 document at the same time, these are
mutually exclusive properties. It's disappointing that the SVG Working
Group insists on this obviously technically incorrect position.

Please consider me dissatisfied with this response aswell; without any
detail on the changes, I cannot decide whether the changes are satis-
factory to me, and fixing stray references to XML 1.0 does not address
my concern about unclear data typing at all.
