Why are <svg> elements not SVGTransformable?

The SVG 1.1 spec says [1] that <svg> elements do not implement the
SVGTransformable interface.

Why not?  I'm curious on the decision here, can someone explain to me
why this wouldn't be acceptable?

<svg width="640" height="480" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">

  <svg viewBox="0 0 320 240" height="100" width="100" y="0" x="300"
id="inner_svg" transform="rotate(10)">
   <rect width="150" height="100" fill="green"/>
   <ellipse cx="119" cy="127" fill="#FF0000" rx="90" ry="33"/>
  </svg>

</svg>

It forces me to add a <g> wrapper around the inner_svg when I don't
really see the need.

Thanks,
Jeff Schiller
