Dear Ian,
This is the SVG Working Group response to your comment found at:


It is a good general suggestion for the specification to express text using
"The UA must..." and "The author must..." (although it is probably better
to define a requirement on the content, not the author, much SVG content
is generated by software). However, we will not take on the huge task of
checking every line of the SVG spec. Most of the existing SVG spec is retained
from previously approved SVG Recommendations. However, we have already
made a series of spec changes in light of your suggestions and will take 
this good
suggestion into account in future editing work. If there are other specific
comments about particular sections of the specification, such as the
comment about 'contentScriptType' in this email, we will respond to those
specific comments.

Relative to your comment about contentScriptType, we have changed the
definition of contentScriptType to say:

   This language must be used for all scripts that do not specify the 
scripting language.

Thank you for your feedback. Please let us know if this does not address 
your concerns. We will assume that you accept this response if two weeks 
pass without further postings on this subject.
