Hello www-svg,

ISSUE-2121

The SVG WG agree to your suggestion below, and have removed the
reference to elliptical arcs as you suggest. Please let us know
shortly if this satisfies your comment.

> 8. Elliptical arcs still referred to in minimize section [MINIMIZE]

> smooth curve formulations are available (cubic Béziers, quadratic
