Hi, Doug-

Thanks for your comment.

We think that's a simply brilliant suggestion, and have changed the spec to
adopt this mechanism, since it is more in line with how fragment identifiers
work in HTML UAs.

This idea is a bit more dodgy, no offense. We may add some way to specify
more complex behavior for linking in a future version of the spec, but it's
out of scope for SVG Tiny 1.2. Also, your psuedocode here is questionable at

If this does not satisfy your concern, please respond within 2 weeks with
further clarification.
