Just curious... given that SVG already has those lists as Appendices, as 
I mentioned to Henri, is that still a burden?  It's trivial for the SVG 
WG to maintain such a definitive list, and we're willing to do so, but 
I'm wondering about the nature of your concern.

Actually, I think it would be advisable for all W3C specs to maintain 
such a list.
