It wouldn't make sense, even if you could specify it, because the
"JavaScript" version, largely refers to the object models, and the
SVG object model is a W3C one, not the Netscape, HTML, ones that these
versions refer to.

More generally, JavaScript is the combination of ECMAScript and the Netscape
HTML object models.  SVG has ECMAScript language bindings and a different
object model.  It just happens that JavaScript is used very loosely.
