The RelaxNG schema and the attribute appendix was in conflict with the  
definition of the 'font-variant' property in the text chapter, for whether  
it was animatable or not. The group sees no reason for this being  
restricted for mobile user agents, and since it's in conflict with other  
parts of the spec as well as with SVG 1.1 this has now been fixed (see the  
font-variant property[1]).

Thank you for your review, please let us know if this resolution is
