Return value of SVGAnimationElement.getStartTime unclear

State:
CLOSED
Product:
SVG Full 1.1

The prose for SVGAnimationElement.getStartTime states:

Returns the start time in seconds for this animation.

but obviously an animation element can have multiple begin times.
Should this function return the first begin time in the list, the begin
time that started the current interval, the begin time that starts the
next interval, or something else? Also, what should happen if the begin
time to be returned is indefinite or unresolved? getSimpleDuration
throws an exception in this case.
