In which case, you should feel free to use your Invited Expert status in
the expired CSS WG, which gives you Member access, to post such details
to the SVG WG list.

I wasn't aware that you were speaking officially for the CDF and HTML

to note, please give a detailed list in the appropriate forum. Failing
which, in the absence of detailed information on which we could act, we
assume that this satisfies your comment.
