Hi Björn,
You are correct that "animation timeline time" wasn't defined. Therefore we have changed it to use the term "document time" instead and have added the following definition for document time:

document time
Indicates the position in the timeline relative to the document begin of a given document fragment. Document time is sometimes also referred to as presentation time. For additional information see the SMIL definition of document time.

Please let us know within two weeks if this reply does not address your concern.
Best regards
/The SVG WG

That's "Returns the current time in seconds relative to the start time
for the current SVG document fragment." and "Adjusts the clock for this
SVG document fragment, establishing a new current time." in SVG 1.1; it
is not clear what either definition means or if they are the same, for
example, the term "animation timeline time" does not seem to be defined
in the document.
