Hi,
We have now changed this from a must to a should. 
# For systems which have system clipboards, the SVG user agent should 
# provide a user interface for initiating a copy of the currently 
# selected text to the system clipboard.

Thanks for your thorough review, please let us know shortly if this  
does not address your concerns.

The SVG Tiny 1.2 specification says:

# For systems which have system clipboards, the SVG user agent is
required 
# to provide a user interface for initiating a copy of the currently 
# selected text to the system clipboard.

This is an inappropriate requirement because there may be numerous 
situations where allowing interaction with the system clipboard is 
undesirable (e.g. in a kiosk environment) or where the system's UI is
such 
that this requirement would be incompatible with platform conventions 
(e.g. on X11 systems where the active selection represents the clipboard

and where the actual "system clipboard" is a separate concept
altogether).

Please remove this inappropriate requirement and allow implementors to 
chose how they interact with the system APIs and platform conventions.
