I think it's very early in the process and no one can tell if  
subsetting will be applied. By the way, Looking at JSR 226,  
subsetting or constraining the uDOM has been achieved without  
subsetting the SVGT 1.1 format itself, thus not causing any kind of  
interoperability woes as far as I can tell. Let's see 9 months from  
now what the APIs look like and what the requirements on the  
implementations are.
