ISSUE-2295: Allow referencing root external files with <use>

<use> external root

Allow referencing root external files with <use>

State:
RAISED
Product:
SVG 2
Raised by:
Doug Schepers
Opened on:
2009-09-26
Description:
Currently, <use> cannot reference an entire SVG file, but can reference the root element of that file if it has an id. Thus, the distinction is not important, and the restriction should be removed.

Proposed wording:
[[
If the value of the href attribute contains a URL without a fragment identifier, then the referenced element is the root element of that referenced document.
]]
