Invalid path data error/unsupported

State:
CLOSED
Product:
SVG 1.2 Tiny: Last Call

Description:

There’s a small inconsistency with how invalid path data is treated. In
the Paths chapter, it is an unsupported value:

Values of the ‘d’ that do not match the EBNF are treated as
unsupported.
— http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.2T/publish/paths.html#PathDataBNF

In the Implementation Notes appendix, it says it is an error:

Unrecognized contents within a path data stream (i.e., contents that
are not part of the path data grammar) must be considered an error.
— http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.2T/publish/paths.html#PathElementImplementationNotes

Unless there are any objections, I will make the Implementation Notes
reiterate that invalid path data is considered to be an unsupported
value.
