According to the latest draft "For compiled languages, the xlink:href
attribute must reference a script element that itself references a JAR
archive holding a manifest with an SVG-Handler-Class entry pointing to
an EventListenerInitializer2 implementation." The only type discussed
in the draft for this purpose is "application/java-archive"; there is
little doubt that the SVG Working Group expects implementations of the
Java language bindings to support this type; if that is not expected,
there is no reason to discuss and use the type in the draft. So yes,
a call for implementation of the draft is a call for implementation of
the unregistered type.
