We have clarified the draft to state that feature strings may only be 
defined by SVG specifications (including future ones), as opposed to 
extensions which are for third parties. Feature strings that are unknown 
to a given user agent (e.g. because it implements an older version of 
the specification than that used by the content) cause the 
requiredFeatures test to return false. This allows for both backwards 
and forwards compatibility.

Thank you for your thorough review of the specification, please let us 
know if this does not address your concerns.
