Hi, Boris-

No apologies necessary, though that's very gacious of you.  I totally
understand your limited time, and I do appreciate your devoting as much time
as you have to reviewing SVG Tiny 1.2.  You have raised excellent issues,
and my hope is still to resolve them in a way that puts the least burden on
implementors (particularly those who are integrating SVG into existing UAs),
and is coherent and understandable.

We did try very hard to make this processing as straightforward and
unsurprising as possible, including testing on existing HTML UAs.  If anyone
else (Hixie springs to mind) does have a more complete processing model or
exhaustive test results about existing script processing models, we would be
happy to look at integration of our efforts.  I would personally like to see
a single script processing model specified for all W3C technologies, insofar
as it is possible.
