Right.  I think we should discuss whether to formally stop maintaining
the Tiny/Basic profiles, while we continue to maintain 1.1 Full.  It
might be best to update the links in Mobile SVG Profiles that are to
/TR/SVG11 to the dated First Edition URL.

Hmm.  I guess you’re right in that Mobile SVG Profiles doesn’t include a
conformance requirement like 1.1 Full does about implementing an
ECMAScript binding for the SVG DOM.  It seems unhelpful for Mobile SVG
Profiles not to require a particular scripting language if scripting is

There are a number of tests already in the test suite that are marked as
-b that use ECMAScript as part of the test.  (21 by my count.)
