Yes, i saw foreign objects were there in SVG 1.1 but it was not mentioned in
SVG 1.2T.So, my understanding is if one element is mentioned in SVG 1.1 &
then not mentioned in SVG 1.2T(e.g. symbol element), then it means SVG 1.2T
*DOES NOT *support that element(symbol element in this case).

Is my understanding correct here?

Correct you are, but as i mentioned i dont know the transform factor at all,
i can't use this mechanism.What i know is only the rectangular region where
i need to draw the triangle, so i need some sort of viewBox/viewport

So, as per above, i think using the animation in a different file is the
only possible solution.Let me try with this to see how it works.
