The SVG WG has provided such reasoning at length, in our email 
discussions, in the Requirements section of our proposal [1], and 
throughout the proposal for particular points.  We believe that we've 
given adequate rationale in general.

If you don't understand or agree with the reasoning behind a particular 
point, it would be more productive to put forth a specific question or 
counter-argument around which to have a discussion.  It's hard to 
predict what exactly you're struggling with, but we're happy to help if 
you have specific points; we don't want to waste our time or yours in a 
shotgun approach to clarification, since that's an unbounded task.  As 
mentioned, we are available during the HTML telcons, as well, if you 
want to discuss any given matter.
