Robin, thank you for the very clear explanation of the current situation.  I 
guess the upshot is that the HTML browser vendors do not in fact feel some of 
the time and competitive pressures that you describe, and the result is still 
that SVG Tiny 1.2 is the wrong process for them to participate in -- it's 
targeted at a completely different audience with completely different needs, 
desires, and economic realities.

Unfortunately, SVG Full 1.2 is planned to be based on SVG Tiny 1.2, and various 
issues unresolved in SVG Tiny 1.2 due to the time constraints will have to be 
grandfathered into SVG Full 1.2.

The combination of all of which leads to the current unhappiness.
