Re: SVG2 CR - Catmull-Rom curve commands missing??

Methinks any future upgrades to SVG should be issued as individual
features, rather than a grandiose draft like SVG 2..
Browsers are currently updated as features are included...why not SVG?
I believe this would encourage SVG web developers to submit their ideas and
particapate in implementing them.
