You raise a good point about incompatibility with SVG 1.1. SMIL 
Animation is no longer being developed. Also, SMIL Animation places 
requirements on a host language, as to what it has to define in addition 
when it integrates SMIL Animation. It would therefore seem logical to 
express that this is the SVG hosted version of SMIL Animation by putting 
it in the SVG namespace.

Given the above points, the WG agrees that we should choose the same way 
SVG 1.1 did and move TimeEvent to 'svg'.
