8.2

"Path data animation is only possible ... exactly the same list of path 
data commands ..."

This appears to forbid step animation of different path data.  Is that 
the intent?

8.2

pathLength: "The author's computation of the total length of the path..."

Given that an implementation is supposed to use the ratio of this value 
to the calculated path length, might this be better described as the 
length of a mapping of R^1 to the path?

8.3.1

"Because of line length limitation with certain related tools... not 
exceeding 255 characters."

The specification should not be giving authoring hints to deal with 
broken tools.

8.3.1

"Also note that newline characters are only allowed at certain places 
within path data."

According to the BNF, newlines are permitted anywhere whitespace is 
allowed in the path data.
