I noticed two things in the text rotate description
in the current CR section 10.4.

1. It is noted:
'A comma- or space-separated list of <number>s must be provided provided.'
- one 'provided' to much...

2. I think, it is not a good idea to change the behaviour of rotate now
in SVG Tiny 1.2, even if the behaviour described in SVG Tiny 1.2 
would have been more useful for authors if it would have been already
specified in this way in SVG 1.0/1.1.
What authors will get now is something unpredictable - some viewers will
show the behaviour of 1.0/1.1, some of 1.2 and I think there will
be not many viewers looking on the version numbering to display
it on way for 1.0/1.1 and in another for 1.2.
For authors this simply means, that the short form for rotate
with less numbers as glyphs will remain unusable for another five
or ten years.

Best wishes
