It would be helpful if the SVG working group could actually answer the 
issues I raise, instead of using the issues as suggestions for topics on 
which to write exploratory essays.

I am, as it should be obvious, intimately familiar with the concepts you 
so kindly detailed in your reply. However, this discursion does not in any 
way answer the question that I raised.

Please answer the actual questions I raised. Specifically, in this 
instance I am looking for four strings, one for each of the examples given 
in the text quoted above, along with the prose that has been placed in the 
specification to address this.
