[SVGMobile12] Very unclear processing model for version="", baseProfile=""

Section C.4 Namespace, version, baseProfile, requiredFeatures and 
requiredExtensions says:

# If these attributes identify a version, a profile, features or 
# extensions, and the features are not supported by the user agent
# [...]

However, the specification does not seem to define how a user agent is to 
establish whether it supports a given version or profile.

For example, nothing in the spec seems to say whether an SVG 1.2 UA should 
claim to support a document that says version="1.1", or "1.0", or "1.1.0".
