I've scanned through the spec, stopping after chapter 10 for now, and 
found at least one certain mistake. On the others my knowledge and feel 
don't agree, maybe you 'anglo-folks' can explain.

Regards,

  "To enable smooth playback during progressive downloading in this 
scenario, it is recommended that each adjacent top level 'g' elements 
contain adjacent chronological scenes in the animation."

Should it not be either "each ... contains" or "all ... contain" ?


"it is suggested that the content author estimate the minimum active 
duration"

Should it not be either "author estimates" or "authors estimate" ?


"provided provided"

One too many "provided" provided here.


"The next line is positioned such that its before edge is flush against 
the after edge of the previous line relative to the 
block-progression-direction."

Google define said about "flush"
in the same plane; "set it flush with the top of the table"
Did i just never run into this meaning of the word before, or is it 
quite an 'exotic' word, then maybe not the greatest wording for an 
international audience.



"In addition to discrete text selection, the SVG user agent should 
provide facility for the mass selection of entire text passages, for 
whatever text is in scope."
