Maybe you have a look at:
https://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/SVG2_Requirements_Input
to get an impression, what is currently still missing in the current draft to 
get it complete with required new features ;o)

Concerning browsers, it would be already a progress, to have a complete 
implementation for SVG 1.1 and SVG tiny 1.2 as specified ;o)
Therefore I think, meanwhile there is a lot of time to complete the SVG 2 
draft as originally intended and removing backwards incompatible issues again.

Did anyone at all check the current draft text for bugs?
I stopped at some point, when there was no really answer to questions about 
missing features, therefore I gave up, assuming the SVG 2 draft to be not 
ready to care about yet.

Checking the draft and indicating bugs are the only things, author can 
currently do, if there are no implementations to test.
Well, maybe one can simulate some features with some approximations, using for 
example a PHP-script to calculate how it should look like.
I have a few, but the related features are not yet in the draft - again not 
much to do here.
