I certainly object to the Working Group's decision to disguise this new
feature as correction of an "omission" in SVG 1.0. As I pointed out in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2006Jan/0526.html the issue
raised here is the result of thoughtless search and replace; what you
propose is incompatible with SVG 1.1, which specified different but per-
fectly sensible behavior that is at least as consistent with "HTML".
