We agree that a specification clarification is in order. We have added 
the following paragraph to 14.1.1:

"A local IRI reference must be to an element within the *SVG document 
fragment* {hyperlink to definition of this term in 1.6}. A local IRI 
reference to an element within the same document but outside the SVG 
document fragment is an invalid IRI reference."

Note that other parts of the SVG spec define what UAs must do with 
"invalid IRI references". Also note that with SVG Full, the 
specification will say *current SVG document fragment* because SVG Full 
allows nesting of svg:svg elements.

Please let us know within two weeks if this does not satisfy your comment.
