[SVGMobile12] Node interface method and property descriptions should just reference the Core DOM

Dear SVG Working Group,

The Node interface in the SVG Mobile 1.2 uDOM is a supposed to be a subset of 
the W3C DOM Core Node interface.  However, the following methods and properties 
are defined in a way that is inconsistent with the Core DOM:

   appendChild (different set of exceptions is thrown, parameter description
                for the newChild parameter says that this Node is equivalent
                to an expression).
   insertBefore (different set of exceptions is thrown)
   removeChild (defines different behavior for removeChild when the child is a
                Text node, for example).

And the following at least defined in a way that is confusing

   cloneNode   (different description, with several grammar errors and
                ambiguities which I can list if it becomes necessary)

I suggest referencing the Core DOM as much as possible here.  Where a simple 
reference is not an option, I suggest referencing the Core DOM and describing 
the differences from the Core DOM behavior only.

Thanks,
-Boris
