If the SVG Working Group could elaborate on what is unclear about the
SVG Working Group's compatibility concerns, I could try to explain the
SVG Working Group's compatibility concerns to the SVG Working Group in
more detail.

To ensure that the proposed SVGGlobal interface is not incompatible
with a future 'Global' interace. If this 'Global' interface provides
a 'document' member in the same way as http://www.w3.org/TR/Window/
proposes, they would not be compatible according to the SVG Working
Group. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2005Oct/0153.html
discusses this problem in detail.
