I did not attend the Sidney F2F. This comment was also not about the  
example snippet but about the normative text. Therefore this reply does  
not satisfy my comment.

It seems this new text lacks a normative reference to SVG and lacks some  
conformance criteria. Values and attribute names seem not be separated as  
well although the WG did agree to make that change? This next text does  
not satisfy my comment per the above reasoning.
