The SVG WG has followed the HTML Co-Chair's request and produced a 
modified version of some of the HTML5 proposal, with integrated changes 
called out via CSS styles, with links to the original wording [1].  The 
changes are not comprehensive, but do start to address some of our 
feedback.  We don't mind if the wording is changed to meet the needs of 
the HTML spec, but we would like the spirit of the changes to be 
honored.  If there is a particular problem, we'd like to discuss that in 
detail.  We hope that this wording helps clarify what we're looking for.

With regards to the outstanding issues, we've put what we consider to be 
reasonable language in our revision of the sections in question.

Great, we look forward to reviewing it.  Pointers to specific changes 
made, and how they address the SVG WG's comments, would be appreciated, 
since you are in the best position to understand and describe the 
implications of your wording changes.

Also, when the HTML WG discusses SVG, we do appreciate copying www-svg, 
since there is simply too much traffic on public-html to monitor closely.
