In http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=287 we have

  2. Support for select SVG Mobile 1.2 features 

     SVG Mobile 1.2 is the next-generation profile for scalable vector
     graphics. It brings a substantial set of compelling features such
     as support for opacity, gradients, advanced text rendering, and
     embedded multimedia (audio, video). The features to be included
     from the SVG Mobile 1.2 specification must be carefully chosen not
     to compromise the important requirements for this JSR such as high
     performance and low implementation footprint, especially for the
     low-end mass market devices. 

Why are these organizations thinking about subsetting SVG Tiny 1.2?
Isn't that somehow bad for interoperability?
