SVG 1.1 was not a timed specification.

When we added timing in 1.2, we split out what had been on image into two, static raster on image and animated vector stuff on animation (and added audio and video).

image is not a timed element in SVG 1.2 (and it wasn't in 1.1 either, of course). video, audio and animation are timed elements.
