RE: Touch-action to SVG elements

I agree "except" is clearer.  I pushed an update to fix this and the out of date note that Rick pointed out: 

"Applies to: all elements except: non-replaced inline elements, table rows, row groups, table columns, and column groups"

"Note: The touch-action property applies only to elements that support both the CSS width and height properties (see [CSS21] ). This restriction is designed to facilitate user agent optimizations for low-latency touch actions. For elements not supported by default, such as <span> which is a non-replaced inline element (see [HTML5]), authors can set the display CSS property to a value, such as block, that supports width and height. Future specifications could extend this API to all elements.."

I don't have a strong preference either way but agree "except" (or
"except:") is a bit clearer.

Good catch. (Although rather than repeat the list, perhaps a new link to 
the normative text above could be used.)
