The issues with SVG 1.1 Tiny and Basic are actualy a bit more  
See this mail:
I think the workaround we found last month is better, see:

I note that you also added a number of modules and files for XHTML  
print and basic, good idea.

Indeed, it was incorrect, but in the end we decided to not fix it,  
because loading of the catalogue is only supported after a certain  
version of XML::LibXML - hence we just didn't load anything and muted  
the entities errors. It may still be a good idea to fix it, although  
I'm not sure what version of XML::LibXML is supported by most systems.
