SVG 1.1 Erratum: solidColor?

Section 13.1 of the SVG 1.1 (14 January 2003) specification refers to a
'solidColor' element, which it claims is described in section 12.  Section
11.1 also mentions that "solid colors are just specific types of paint
servers" and uses the same link target to section 12 for 'solid colors' as
section 13.1 does for 'solidColor'.

Section 12 does not describe a 'solidColor' element, and it is not present
in Appendix A's DTD.

Google tells me that 'solidColor' was present in the 15 February 2002
version of the SVG 1.1 spec, and was deleted because it was to be moved to
SVG 1.2 (and, indeed, it is present in the SVG 1.2 Tiny Candidate
Recommendation).  It appears that the element was incompletely deleted from
the SVG 1.1 specification; in my opinion sections 11.1 and 13.1 should be
mentioned in the errata for the SVG 1.1 spec.
