SVGt 1.2 Tests: text-text-06-t assumes that text x/y will not break ligatures

Hi All,
 
Test text-text-06-t is based on the assumption that the
glyph specific translations are handled after finding
ligatures from the text. Test description refers to text 
in section 10.5, which seems to be in SVG Full 1.1
specification. There is no corresponding language
in the SVGt 1.2 specification that I can find.
 
All that SVGt 1.2 specification says in 10.6.1 is:

An absolute position adjustment occurs in the following
circumstances:
...
* For each character within a 'text' element which has an 
'x' or 'y' attribute value assigned to it explicitly
...
Each absolute position adjustment defines a new text chunk.
Absolute position adjustments impact text layout in the
following ways:
* Ligatures only occur when a set of characters which might
map to a ligature are all in the same text chunk

So, it seems that text-text-06-t tests a feature
that just is not there in SVGt 1.2. Is this correct?
 
Yours,
