I'd like to clarify that the changes appendix is primarily there to
satisfy a W3C process requirement related to patent policy, and thus
lists changes since the previous publication for which there was an
exclusion opportunity (such as a FPWD or Last Call).

So, the changes appendix in the next publication will list changes
relative to the Last Call document.

( Tracker, this is ACTION-2906 )

Having said which, a non-normative summary of all the changes between
SVG 1.1 First and Second editions is certainly very helpful, for
someone familiar with the first edition; a diff is easy to generate
but tends to trip up over minor changes to markup or even line
breaking or rearrangement of paragraphs.

So we are happy to accept this as a last call comment (despite the
comment period being closed) and to add, in addition to the changes
appendix, a new appendix listing all the changes.

The appendix to which you linked was a great start - may we have your
permission to ad it to the specification? How did you generate it? We
would need to update it to account for later changes - are you
interested in helping with that?
