Hi Björn,

We have now removed the different modules from the spec since they were only used for identifying which parts of the spec that corresponds to which feature string. Instead the feature string chapter directly lists which properties and which elements that belongs to each feature string. Attributes are in general not listed as having their own feature strings since they belong to their element, e.g. if you claim to support the feature string that the rect belongs to you also must support the rx attribute. Some attributes that span over many elements do have their own feature string, like the newly introduced http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/feature/1.2/#NavigationAttribute <http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/feature/1.2/#NavigationAttribute>  which contains pointer-events, focusable, focusHighlight and nav-* attributes.

Thanks

/ola (for the SVG WG)

As pointed out above, not each chapter but only some chapters have this,
and while your changes improved the situation a bit, there are still a
number of problems, e.g. the interactivity chapter does not have a lost
of modules and as a result it is unclear which feature strings would
correspond to e.g. 'pointer-events' and and 'focusHighlight'. I am not
too concerned about the presentation as long as the presentation allows
for easy checking for errors and omissions.
