Bjoern makes the following request:

   SVG spec refers to Foo while XPointer spec refers to Bar.  Please make the
   SVG spec refer to the XPointer spec.

SVG Working Group makes the following response:

   We have changed the SVG spec to refer to Bar.

There is no mention of XPointer in the reply.  This is clearly not what Bjoern 
requested, no?  Hence his question why his request was rejected.
