(Insert after Default Icons table)

<p>Note that implementations which allow the use of <em class="ct"><a href="#svg">[SVG]</a></em> as an icon format <em class="ct">may</em> display declarative animation, but <em class="ct">must not</em> execute scripts or interactivity defined within the icon file, for security purposes.  This is defined as the set of features intended for use of SVG as a dynamic image, corresponding to the <a href="#svgtiny">[SVGTiny]</a> profile, and to specific feature strings for <a href="#svg">[SVG]</a> ("http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/feature#SVG-static") and <a href="#svgtiny12">[SVGTiny12]</a> ("http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/feature/1.2/#SVG-animated").</p>

<p><strong>Author requirement: </strong>authors using <em class="ct"><a href="#svg">[SVG]</a></em> as an icon format <em class="ct">may</em> create icons that use declarative animation, but <em class="ct">must not</em> rely upon script or interactivity within the icon file.</p>

<h4 class="no-toc no-num" id="conformance-checker-behavior-4">Conformance checker behavior</h4>

<p>If a CC encounters an icon in the <a href="#svg">[SVG]</a> format, it <em class="ct">may</em> warn the author if the icon includes script or interactive functionality.</p>
