Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  From http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-SVG12-20041027/ and more precisely
http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-SVG11-20030114/conform.html it seems that
SVG 1.2 only requires support for an arbitrary profile of RFC 2397, it

  The viewer must support base64 encoded content using the "data:"
  protocol [RFC2397] wherever URI referencing of whole documents
  (such as raster images, SVG documents, fonts and color profiles)
  is permitted within SVG content.

This suggests that data: urls like


might not be supported in conforming SVG 1.2 user agents. Please remove
this arbitrary restriction and require complete support of RFC 2397. And
please change the specification such that it does not refer to schemes
as "protocols"...
