I've removed the offending sentence, but be warned that it may return in
SVG Full.  How would you reword this in light of writing-mode="tb-lr"
(for Mongolian, Manchu and Phags-pa script), a value not covered in SVG
1.1 Full?

Please let us know if this satisfies your comment, in terms of the SVG
1.2 Tiny spec.
