Luckily, two unusual circumstances make this not an issue for SVG 1.2 
Tiny:

  1. As SVG working group members have told us several times, you already 
     have a host of implementations working on implementing SVG 1.2 Tiny
     despite it still being a working draft, and so do not need to wait 
     for CR to get implementation feedback,

  2. As is clear from the mail to this mailing list, there has not been a 
     lack of issues being found, including serious problems.

Therefore there is no chicken-and-egg problem in this case.
