Thanks for your comment.

After discussion, and taking into account the many posts on this thread, we
have resolved that since AbstractView is not mandatory in DOM2, it is not
required in SVG Tiny. We do not forbid its use by implementors, however, so
we do not believe that it creates incompatibilities with any future Window

Currently, the only specification referencing AbstractView is CSS-OM, which
is not applicable to SVG Tiny. Thus, we have chosen to refrain from making
any change to the specification in this regard.

If this does not satisfy your concern, please respond within 2 weeks with
further clarification.

Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
