[SVGMobile12] Issue SVGT12-479 (used to be issue SVGT12-175) is STILL not resolved

In http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2006Jan/0422.html I requested 
(for a second time) a clarification for what happens with regard
to the "SVG document fragment" when an <svg:svg> has another <svg:svg> as a
descendant.  For a second time, the issue has been marked resolved, while the 
text does not seem to have been clarified past saying that "'svg' elements 
cannot appear in the middle of SVG content."  Since there is nothing preventing 
creation of such DOM trees via either parsing of XML or DOM manipulation, this 
is not an acceptable resolution.

What I would like is a definition of "SVG document fragment" that will allow the 
following simple operation:

   Given a DOM tree, make a list of all SVG document fragments
   present in that DOM tree; for each SVG document fragment,
   list all nodes belonging to that SVG document fragment.

This is impossible with the current text.

Please update the resolution of issue SVGT12-479 to indicate that I am not 
satisfied with the current resolution.

I would really like to get somewhere on this, since this is the third time I'm 
raising this issue....

Thanks,
-Boris
