Let's see:

  * SVG Tiny 1.2 refers to HTML, not XHTML, so XHTML is irrelevant

  * XHTML 1.0 4.11 refers to XHTML 1.0's "enumerated attributes"

      - the SVG attributes are not XHTML attributes
      - the SVG attributes are not enumerated attributes
      - even the XHTML 1.0 attributes that take color values are not
        enumerated attributes

  * XHTML M12N clearly specifies that color keywords are case-in-
    sensitive, so even if XHTML and/or XHTML 1.0 4.11 would in some
    way be relevant, they clearly provide obsolete information.
