Hello Doug, all,

this is a very late follow up on the ITS Working Group comment on SVG 
Tiny 1.2 . I have worked on my action item to provide a section 
describing the usages of ITS 1.0 in SVG Tiny 1.2. See the attached PDF. 
Please let me know if you agree with this draft or need modifications. 
After we have reached consensus on the text I will make a proposal for a 
modified schema (it shouldn't be to many changes).

Note that this is currently no official comment by the ITS Interest 
Group, but a personal comment / follow up which I am making to meet your 
last call deadline.

Regards, Felix.
