Mike,

please provide evidence for your assertion,

reading the SVG 1.1 spec says:
'Usually, a ‘foreignObject’ will be used in conjunction with the ‘switch’
element...'
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/extend.html#EmbeddingForeignObjects

usually does not imply 'must'

in my view this is analogous to the 'alt' model where alt content is usually
desirable,
except where the image is for instance a spacer, or perhaps list marker...

in my use case, there is no alternative content that would be helpful.


if you still believe this bug ill-conceived, please provide a URL that
substantiates your suggestion,
I shall review and take to working group as required.
