This is not specified. F.2. specifies "in error". You would think the fourth
point, "Other situations that are described as being in error in this
specification", would apply, but G.4. does not talk about "in error".

Anyway, it seems that the intent is that nothing should be displayed as 
is part of SVG, but it is not conforming as it is not inside SVG context and
should therefore not be rendered at all. (As if it had 'display:none'.)

Is that what SVG Tiny 1.2 says and what the consensus is of the SVG WG? (I'm
just trying to find out what we should implement.)

Kind regards,
