Implementaion must not extend SVG namespace with additional elements or attributes.


I am woundering if SVG spec has any statements that make sure there are no new extention to the SVG namespace? Is there a mechanism in SVG that allows extenstions ?

I am reading XSLT spec when I came across this statement:
(end of second paragraph) 

  Implementations must not extend the XSLT namespace with additional elements or attributes. Instead, any extension must be in a separate namespace. Any namespace that is used for additional instruction elements must be identified by means of the extension instruction mechanism specified in 18.2 Extension Instructions.

Does SVG 1.1 modules or SVG 2.0 have such a mechanism ?
