The SVG WG has discussed navigation mechanisms and syntax with the CSS,
HTML, WAI, and DI WGs at the Technical Plenary in March, and found common
ground to move forward. The SVG WG habegun the process toward a further
liaison to these groups (and now including XForms) with the goal of
establishing a joint resolution for unified syntax that meets the
requirements of all of these groups. We have proposed a joint telcon with a
specific agenda on settling these issues in a timely manner.

In the meantime, the SVG WG believes that it has done due diligence in
merging the best of all worlds to arrive at its current navigation
specification, and thus we will go forward with the current draft, pending
the results of our joint work with the other WGs.

If this does not satisfy your concern, please respond promptly.

Thanks-
Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
