Thanks for your feedback on this issue. We have discussed this in the WG,
and have decided that it is appropriate to include authoring guidelines
inside the specification, as a Specification is intended not only for
implementors, but for authors. We have carefully reviewed the particular
passage in question, and believe that this does not reflect any particular
implementation, but rather is a stylistic guideline that helps authors
understand the purpose of the <defs> element. Therefore, we have decided to
keep this passage as it stands.

Please tell us within two weeks if this response is not acceptable.

Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
