Hello www-svg ;o)

Looking on the clip property of SVG1.1 and its implementation 
I currently observed an interesting change/error/regression in 
Opera 9.5 and later.
Previous versions got it right as some other viewers like Batik/Squiggle
or the adobe plugin.
This might be related to a change of the definition of the clip 
property in CSS2.1 compared to CSS2.0, SVG1.1 refers too, therefore
the new CSS2.1 definition is clearly wrong for SVG1.1.

Is it intended to refer to CSS2.1 in future versions of SVG and therefore
make this property finally unusable for authors, because the behaviour
in newer and older viewers will be completely different? Or should it
be explicitly clarified, what remains correct for SVG to keep this
property usable or will this property be skipped anyway in the 
future in favour of other new properties or attributes with a similar
functionality, as currently discussed?
