Dirk and heycam's replies to your original e-mail here suggest that this
is not really viable. I mean, it'd be like changing document.title in
HTML to point to the first title="" attribute in the document if it came
before the first <title>.
Anyway, what the spec ended up saying is in some ways even simpler, since
it only looks one level deep for SVG rather than doing a deep tree search.
(Is this the kind of change that you would have liked pre-flighted? I can
revert the change and put out an announcement if you like. I'm not yet
sure I exactly understand what kinds of changes fall into this category.)
