In this case it's a choice between one incompatibility and another.  
This specific API is what is supported by JSR-226, and the SVG WG is  
committed to being compatible with that. Ideally, JSR-226 would have  
been more compatible with Full 1.1, but unfortunately while that was  
largely made to happen, in some cases it wasn't possible. JSR-226 is  
a stable specification, and phones are already shipping with it. We  
therefore decline to make the change.

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