My concern is that fully integrating SVG 1.2 Tiny brings CURIEs, the  
<handler>/<event>/ev:event stuff and xml:id into HTML parsing through  
a back door.

I'm also concerned about textArea duplicating the functionality of  
having a CSS formatter in a <foreignObject>, but adding textArea to  
the case fixup tables worries me less from the parser/DOM POV than the  
above-mentioned things.

There's also new stuff that seems good, such the focusable attribute.
