Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  In http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-SVG12-20041027/ the definition of
inheritance from referenced elements is unclear about what value is
inherited, for example, the definition of the xlink:href attribute
on linearGradient elements states

  Any 'linearGradient' attributes which are defined on the referenced
  element which are not defined on this element are inherited by this
  element. If this element has no defined gradient stops, and the
  referenced element does (possibly due to its own href attribute),
  then this element inherits the gradient stop from the referenced

This could be the computed base value, the computed value, the literal
string value, or even no value at all (e.g., inheriting the xml:base
attribute would seem weird as that could cause xlink:href to have a
different computed base value and thus inheritance from a different
element). Please change the specification such that this requirement
is clarified.
