Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

section 5.8.2 is unclear about processing of switch children,
the draft notes

  The 'switch' element evaluates the ... attributes on its direct
  child elements in order, and then processes and renders the first
  child for which these attributes evaluate to true. All others
  will be bypassed and therefore not rendered. If the child element
  is a container element such as a 'g', then the entire subtree is
  either processed/rendered or bypassed/not rendered.

It's not clear what the "/" here means, does it mean "or", "and",
or even "i.e."? It's also not clear what it means to "bypass" an
element; please change the draft such that this is clarified.
