Hi, Jonathan-

Please refer to my earlier post on this issue:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2008Jul/0174.html

Also, you can follow the thread starting here for more information, 
including links to the revised wording in the spec:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-svg-wg/2008JulSep/0091.html

If this doesn't meet your needs, let us know specifically where it needs 
work, and suggest specific remedies.  The current working plan is that 
if no fallback content is provided for an element with no specified 
dimensions, nothing would be displayed.  Note that for SVG Full, <use> 
does have 'width' and 'height' attributes.

Regards-
-Doug
