SVG2: 10.12 Editable text fields

I am concerned that my contributions both in filing SVG errata and  
bugs over almost a decade has not resulted in my inclusion as a  
contributing author, and hope the Working group will take steps to  
amend this.

Two proposed changes for SVG2 which may  be errata for SVG1.2

SVG 1.2 10.12 Editable text fields does not mention password, please  
add ie input is displayed as asterix, but content is available through  

SVG 1.2 10.12 Editable text fields does not describe clipping, once   
the text area is full, one would expect text to move to the left and  
be hidden, caret remains near right edge of box, for l-r languages
however  see  http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGTiny12/examples/textArea02.svg
in  Opera text overflows to right. Is this an Opera bug? seems not to  
be defined.

finally: where is the public space where SVG2 is being discussed and
