Elements for which "defer" can be used in preserveAspectRatio=""

The spec currently says the following about "defer" in
preserveAspectRatio="":

  defer
    If the value of 'preserveAspectRatio' on an element that references
    data ('image', 'animation' and 'video') starts with defer then the
    value of the 'preserveAspectRatio' attribute on the referenced
    content if present must be used.  If the referenced content lacks a
    value for 'preserveAspectRatio' then 'preserveAspectRatio' attribute
    must be processed as normal (ignoring defer).  For
    'preserveAspectRatio' on all other elements the defer portion of the
    attribute is ignored.

Since <image> can reference only raster images, it seems that it can be
removed from that list in the parentheses.  Is that right?

Thanks,

Cameron
