I assume the "well-formedness constraints" mostly related to how XHTML 
works (whether the SVG rules should be loosened - because of authors or 
UAs - is a separate issue):

If the document is XHTML, then the SVG will fail if the XHTML fails, 
even if the SVG is correct. If the document is HTML, then a) this use 
case doesn't require that the author change his HTML to XHTML and b) 
permits normal/illegal HTML without affecting the SVG.
