SVG element namespace requirement

State:

SVG 1.2 Tiny: Last Call

Description:

In the Implementation Notes appendix, it says:

User agents must only consider elements explicitly placed in the SVG
namespace by XML Namespace declarations in the document (e.g.,
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">) as being SVG elements.
—– http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.2T/publish/implnote.html#VersionControl

This ignores elements created using the uDOM. I suggest this be
reworded as follows:

When parsing a document, SVG user agents must only consider elements
explicitly placed in the SVG namespace by XML namespace declarations
in the document (e.g., <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">) as
being SVG elements. Similarly, any elements created with the
Document::createElementNS() uDOM method must have had the SVG
namespace passed as the namespaceURI parameter for it to be considered
to be an SVG element.
