The text that you quoted regarding 'the name of the licensed font to use
for editing' was incorrect and was based on a misunderstanding of what
font-face-src was for in CSS2 WebFonts. The text has been removed.

As a consequence of this review, it was found that the font-face-name
element was not in fact serving a useful purpose and it has been removed
also.

Example 20_01.svg has been corrected.

For an example of the use of font-face-src, please see example
font03.svg.

Thanks for your review, please let us know shortly if this response does
not address your comment.
