Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20051207/animate.html defines
the accessKey value as

  From a formal processing model perspective, accessKey is a keydown
  event listener on the document which behaves as if stopPropagation()
  and preventDefault() have both been invoked. The "character" value can
  be any of the keyboard event identifier strings listed in Appendix A.2
  of the DOM3 Events specification [DOM3Events]. user. 

In addition to the strange typo at the end, the definition is incomplete
as it does not define what phase the listener is registered for. Calling
the stopPropagation() method would only make sense if for the capture
phase; please change the draft such that the processing model for this
feature is well-defined.

regards,
