<text> is not defined anywhere, <iri> is referred to but not defined,
some definitions are highly misleading such as

  <transform-list> : The detailed description of the possible values for
  a <transform-list> are detailed in Modifying the User Coordinate
  System: the transform attribute. 

As the definition of the transform attribute also uses the non-terminal
symbol name "transform-list" but the two instances of the symbol are
very different. Some definitions are just bogus, for example,

  <ContentType> : an Internet Media type, as per [RFC2046].

In http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2005Jan/0039 I already
explained why this is bogus but the Working Group neglected to formally
address my comment; and so on. So, while I'm glad the draft has been
improved a bit in this area, I believe the original issue is not
addressed yet.
