Hi Alex,

I agree that we need to finish the spec as soon as possible.
We don't have major objections to the current spec but believe that it is
not detailed enough in certain areas which could cause rendering
differences.

A main area of concern is the knockout property and how it mixes with P-D.
If the spec has to be ready soon, it might be best if we drop this feature
and revisit it for version 2.
Do you believe that there is anyone that implements this feature?

When would you like the current spec to be completed? Is there enough time
left so we can discuss it in the upcoming SVG meeting in Seattle?

Rik
