Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20051207/interact.html has a
note

  A SVGLoad event must be dispatched only to the element to
  which the event applies; it must not be dispatched to its ancestors.
  For example, if an 'image' element and its parent 'g' element both
  have event listeners for SVGLoad events, when the 'image' element
  has been loaded, only its event listener will be invoked. (The 'g'
  element's event listener will indeed get invoked, but the invocation
  will happen when the 'g' itself has been loaded.)

This seems to be just a very confusing way to say that the SVGLoad event
does not bubble. Please replace this statement with a simple statement
that the SVGLoad event does not bubble or simple remove the statement
entirely (it's redundant with the definition of the load event in the
DOM Level 3 Events specification, except that the text above suggests
the event won't be dispatched to the Document which it would per DOM
Level 3 Events, which is another problem).

regards,
