Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/animate.html section
16.2.16 is unclear about various aspects of animation color and paint
properties. The draft notes

  If a given attribute or property can take values of keywords
  (which are not additive) or numeric values (which are additive),

It is not clear to me whether this is meant to say that keywords are not
additive but numeric values are or whether it is meant to refer to non-
additive keywords only. Clearly, "red" is a color keyword, and RGB color
values are additive, so in case of the former, the note is not correct.
Please change the note such that it is clear what it means.

Further, the tables notes that "Only RGB color values are additive." It
is however not clear what "RGB color values" are; it seems that <color>
and <paint> always refer to a "RGB color value" except for references to
gradient paint servers. Or, considering the use of "RGB value" in 4.1,
it might mean that "red" is not a "RGB color value". Please change the
draft such that it is clear which <paint> and <color> values are meant
to be additive.
