If the SVG 1.1 DTD is of any authoritative answer here, there it's 
defined as:

     <!ATTLIST %SVG.svg.qname;
         version %Number.datatype; #FIXED '1.1'


Remembering from the Olden Days that #FIXED in DTDs means, that an 
#FIXED attribute is not literally required in the XML source, the DTD 
says you can omit it.
