[ RESEND - Somehow the last transmission got mangled. ]

Bjoern and everyone,
This is a follow-on response in attempt to close discussion on the
original LC comment you submitted via:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2005Apr/0233.html
and which I was the last person to complain that the text is not yet
good enough:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2005Apr/0233.html

Here is proposed new wording from the SVG WG on the topic which we hope
expresses the processing model for 'foreignObject' clearly:

---------------
The user agent must treat all of the content within a 'foreignObject' as
foreign content which is to be handed off to an appropriate content
handler for rendering. User agents are not required to support any
particular content types via 'foreignObject'. In particular, user agents
are not required to support SVG content embedded within or referenced by
'foreignObject'; SVG content within 'foreignObject' represents an
extension  just as with any other type of content.
---------------

Please tell us within two weeks if the above text is unacceptable.

Thanks.
Jon Ferraiolo (for the SVG WG)
