Section 15.2 of the SVG2 spec [1] talks about events such as "resize", 
"scroll", etc. firing when changes occur to the "document view".

I cannot find any other use or definition of "document view" in the 
spec. What does it mean? In particular, what does it mean when the SVG 
document is embedded inline within another document, such as HTML?

Knowing when an inline SVG document has been resized or scrolled would 
be extremely useful. Knowing when the encompassing HTML document scrolls 
or resizes seems less useful, as there generally other, easier ways to 
receive and respond to this information.

Whatever "document view" intended to mean, shouldn't it be properly 
defined at least? Right now it is rather ambiguous.
