Appendix L says:

   SVG Tiny 1.2 does not require support for a style sheet language, but
   should the user agent use one these properties are also usable for use
   with it.

And then says:

   inh.
     This column indicates whether or not the given attribute or property is
     inheritable. There are two options:

     ✔  This attribute or property may be inherited.
     ✘  This attribute or property may not be inherited.

The thing is, all properties MAY be inherited (eg with "propname: inherit" in 
CSS, per that first quoted paragraph, or by setting the property to the 
'inherit' value, which is listed in the "Value" column here). Some properties 
are not inherited by default, however.

So it seems to me that the "inh." column description should be more like:

     ✔  This attribute or property is inherited by default.
     ✘  This attribute or property is not inherited by default.
