There's a difference in what 1.2T defines and what 1.1F2 defines for  
paintservers[1][2]. If a paintserver is "invalid" (no exhaustive list is  
given for when that is, just some examples, that should be clarified) then  
in 1.1 that makes the whole document be 'in error', while in 1.2T it just  
means that it will be treated as if 'none' was specified.

Maybe, but black is not the default stroke color, the default for stroke  
is 'none' [3].
