I think what Jean-Claude means is that the elements, attributes, syntax, 
semantics, etc... of non-vector graphics items are separated from the 
vector graphics items. i.e. the script and handler elements would be in 
a different specification to rect and path. So it should read something 
like:

    a vector graphics profile, which could be the current SVGT1.2 profile
    purged of any non vector graphics items (*including their* elements
    and attributes syntax,
    semantics, rendering model and specific APIs)

I'm not supporting or rebutting this point of view, simply trying to 
clarify the situation.

Regards,
Craig
