Hi, Boris-

Thanks for your thorough review of the spec.

Based on comments in this thread and on internal discussion, we have added
this sentence to the first paragraph of that section:

"If a script element has both an xlink:href attribute and child character
data, the executable content for the script is retrieved only from the IRI
of the xlink:href attribute, and the child content is not added to the
scripting context."

If this does not satisfy your concern, please let us know right away.

Thanks-
Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
