Hello ,

ISSUE-2341
Clarify data types such as "<coordinate>+" 

after a bit of hunting around, this archived page from the old wiki seems to describe the issue
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/TextAdditiveAnimation

linked from an old thread on the (member-only) old list archive
Re: Paced animation of point-list values
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-svg-wg/2008AprJun/0090.html

The value <coordinate>+, which is not defined in the types chapter but is defined inline in the text chapter, is not used for basic shapes or paths but is used for x any y attributes on text (and related <length>+ on dy and dy)
http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.1F2/publish/text.html#TextElementXAttribute

In Tiny 1.2 these were changed to <list-of-coordinates> which is a defined type in the types chapter
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGTiny12/text.html#TextElementXAttribute

<coordinate>+ does not appear in the list of types that can be animated
http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.1F2/publish/animate.html#AnimationAttributesAndProperties
but list-of-Ts does, and is said to be not additive (while coordinate is additive)

The corresponding definitions in 1.2T
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGTiny12/animate.html#AnimationAttributesAndProperties

(which has some useful clarifications after the table that might be used in 1.1 as well).

ACTION-2818 in progress
