In
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20051207/implnote.html#VersionControl>
 it is first suggested that "version" does not provide sufficient information
("baseProfile" is needed as well), but later it is suggested that the UA can do
something with "version" alone.

It seems logical to me that only "version" _can_ provide sufficient information
the user agent. For example, if an implementation of some profile of SVG 1.2
encounters SVG content with "version" set to "1.5"... it probably "knows" it is
going to ignore some elements and attributes given the forward compatible error
handling...

Please change the text to make it more clear what is actually meant.
