Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20051207/svgudom.html defines
the parseXML method in a confusing manner; in addition to the incorrect
reference to Namespaces in XML 1.1, it suggests that if the document
parameter is specified and the parsed document is an XML 1.1 document
that uses e.g. XML 1.1 specific element names, and the 'document' is an
XML 1.0 document, that the method would not return null. As the method
is defined in terms of the importNode method, which would raise an
exception in this case, it is unclear what would happen. Please remove
these two problems.
