SVGMobile12] SVGT12-183: Rules for handling "unsupported" values don't work when properties are syntactically correct and specified using W3C mechanisms other than SVG attributes

Ian,
   In response to your comment at:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2005Dec/0055.html

Quoting from the CSS 2.1 spec:
"If a UA does not support a particular value, it should /ignore/ that 
value when parsing style sheets, as if that value was an illegal value 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#illegalvalues>. "
So, an invalid IRI should be treated as an illegal value, which 
according to the CSS 2.1 spec
should be treated as if it were not specified. So, the SVGT 1.2 honors 
the CSS rule.
The WG disagrees with your proposed solution::
"Please correct the specification so that unsupported values of <paint> 
have implementable handling, e.g. requiring that unsupported values be 
treated as 'black'."
as this would contradict the CSS 2.1 spec.

Thank you
-Nandini
