svg style validating should not treat type as required attribute

Validate the following:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <head>
    <title>SVG 1.1, 2nd Edition</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <svg version="1.1" baseProfile="full" id="svg-root" width="100%"
height="100%" viewBox="0 0 480 360" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
      <g id="test-body-content">
        <style id="test"></style>
      </g>
    </svg>
  </body>
</html>


Actual:
3.Error: Element style is missing required attribute type.

>From line 9, column 9; to line 9, column 25

>?        <style id="test"></styl

Expected:
No error

As stated in 
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/styling.html#StyleElement

type = content-type
This attribute specifies the style sheet language of the element's contents.
The style sheet language is specified as a content type (e.g., "text/css"), as
per MIME Part Two: Media Types [RFC2046]. If a ‘type’ is not provided, the
value of ‘contentStyleType’ on the ‘svg’ element shall be used, which in turn
defaults to "text/css" [RFC2046]. If a ‘style’ element falls outside of the
outermost svg element and the ‘type’ is not provided, the ‘type’ must default
to "text/css" [RFC2046]. 
Animatable: no.

It implies that type can be missing from style tag, should be optional.
