Hi Björn,
snapshotTime has nothing to do with conformance of viewers, nor is it a requirement for dynamic viewers. snapshotTime is a hint that can be used by a UA that needs to generate a raster image representation of an animated svg file. Not all viewers will need to do so and they will simply ignore snapshotTime. In any case we have changed the description of the example images to the wording suggested by Chris.
Thanks
/ola (for the SVG WG)

Well, make it a requirement for "Conforming Dynamic SVG Viewers" then,
and change the description of the example to "Conforming Static SVG
Viewer" on the left and "Conforming Dynamic SVG Viewers" on the right.
