Can we remove the "Internationalization Support" and "Minimizing SVG 
File Sizes" appendices?  I don't think they serve much of a useful purpose.

There is a seemingly normative statement in i18n.html:

   SVG generators should follow W3C guidelines for normalizing character
   data [CHARMOD].

though never mind that it appears in an informative appendix.  Although 
it links to CHARMOD it should be linking to CHARMOD-NORM, which 
currently says:

   This version of this document was published to indicate the
   Internationalization Core Working Group's intention to substantially
   alter or replace the recommendations found here with very different
   recommendations in the near future. Other than this note, this
   Working Draft is identical to the draft of 2005-10-27.

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-charmod-norm-20120501/

so perhaps it is best to lose this statement anyway.
