I will accept this resolution, but I should point out that this method
is on the SVGSVGElement interface which is also available if the <svg>
is embedded e.g. in a XHTML document, in which case processing happens
in terms of the time container that is the <svg> element and not in
terms of some in this case inexistant SVG document timeline. But that's
a general problem that also occurs in SMIL, and should probably be
addressed there first. Thanks.
