I think this new section needs to be reviewed by a group in the Semantic
Web Activity, in particular whether it is sound to define an "attribute"
in this case, whether this re-use of the SVG namespace (assuming the ex-
amples are all incorrect) is technically sound, and whether conformance
clauses like

  This attribute may be added to the OpenGIS
  'CoordinateReferenceSystem' element.

are correctly phrased and appropriately placed in the specification. If
you can show me evidence of positive comments from such a group, that
would address my concerns. As it stands, I don't think the changes made
are acceptable to me.
