As explained in previous responses, it is highly unfortunate that  
coordination with the JSR 226 EG failed to reconcile these, but the  
SVG WG is committed to being compatible with JSR-226 and will  
therefore not change the specification on this point.

Thank you very much for your comments, please let us know shortly if  
these do not address your concerns,
