We agree and have added the following definition, in the style of other
attribute definitions rather than being informally described in the

The svg:transform  attribute

Attribute definition:

svg:transform = "<transform-list>" | "none"

        The syntax is identical to that described in The
        TransformList value section.
        Specifying a value of none has the same meaning as the        identity matrix. This is exactly the same as not setting
        the attribute at all.

    Animatable: no.

Describes an optional additional affine transformation that may have
been applied during this mapping. This attribute may be added to the
OpenGIS 'CoordinateReferenceSystem' element. Note that, unlike the
transform attribute, it does not indicate that a transformation should
be applied to the data within the file. Instead, it simply describes the
transformation that was already applied to the data when being encoded
in SVG.
