We have added the following explanitary text to the description of getCurrentFocusedObject in
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/svgudom.html#svg::SVGSVGElement -

Returns a reference to the object which has the focus.  This returns a 
DOMObject because the currently focused object may be an object outside 
the SVG namespace.  If the currently focused object is in the SVG 
namespace, it should be cast to events::EventTarget.

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