Hi Chris,
As you know, I left the SVG WG in May and have been focused on "Ajax"
lately, and thus I am now just a member of the community. As a member of
the community, I would like to express a strong congratulations on reaching
this important milestone.

At this point, I have lost track of how many years SVG-t 1.2 has been under
development, but it is great that it is finally at the point where the SVG
mobile community can progress on implementations with knowledge that the
specification is now stable. This is a critical market enabler so that the
mobile community can feel confident in embracing rich mobile web
applications that leverage open standards, with SVG-t 1.2 for the
interactive graphics and user interfaces. These mobile applications require
key new features from SVG-t 1.2, such as scripting, opacity, gradients, and
simple text wrapping.

I hope PR and Recommendation will happen quickly.

Jon
