SVGWG: SVG 1.1 processing invalid external URI references
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/struct.html#HeadOverview

is the following described in the specification, and if not is this an  
errata?

what is the required (or desirable behaviour) when processing a  
document with an invalid external URI reference, for instance in a  
<use> or perhaps <image> element?

regards

Jonathan

The author and user might both generally be expected to wish to be  
advised.
e.g. missing images in HTML are generally indicated by a symbol.

iirc recent versions of Opera and Amaya ignored the 'missing' content,  
whereas batik did not render any of the document and produced an error  
dialogue.
