Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  In http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-SVG12-20041027/ it is somewhat unclear
whether objects for the style element and the xml-stylesheet PI are re-
quired to implement the stylesheets::LinkStyle interface. From DOM2 it

  The LinkStyle interface provides a mechanism by which a style sheet
  can be retrieved from the node responsible for linking it into a
  document. An instance of the LinkStyle interface can be obtained using
  binding-specific casting methods on an instance of a linking node
  (HTMLLinkElement, HTMLStyleElement or ProcessingInstruction in DOM
  Level 2).

would be reasonable to expect that, yet the interface definition does
not define the corresponding interfaces that way. Consequently this
cannot be used in conforming documents, even though it is implemented
in several implementations. Please change the draft such that these
either inherit from the LinkStyle interface or that it points out very
clearly that this is not allowed as it does for other features.
