8. Elliptical arcs still referred to in minimize section [MINIMIZE]

Current wording:

SVG's path data definition was defined to produce a compact data
stream for vector graphics data: all commands are one character in
length; relative coordinates are available; separator characters do
not have to be supplied when tokens can be identified implicitly;
smooth curve formulations are available (cubic Béziers, quadratic
Béziers and elliptical arcs) to prevent the need to tessellate into
polylines; and shortcut formulations exist for common forms of cubic
Bézier segments, quadratic Bézier segments, and horizontal and
vertical straight line segments so that the minimum number of
coordinates need to be specified.

But arcs aren't available in this particular profile. Suggestion is to
remove this particular item resulting in:
