updated IPR statements for SVG 1.0

There have been some updates to the IPR licenses made
for SVG 1.0 (all positive!).

Apple have announced a royalty-free license for the
patent they named early in the SVG 1.0 process. 
Before this annoucement, the best the W3C could say was
that the SVG Working Group made a concerted effort to
avoid the patent. Apple have recently made public
statements that they support Web standards, such as
SVG, being royalty free.

Canon also ammended their royalty free statement to
refer to the latest version of the W3C Patent Policy.

Details can be found on the SVG 1.0 Patent page
