Flip org.w3c.svg.static to be a supported feature


(Core :: SVG, defect)

Annoyingly, the test:

depends on the feature string "org.w3c.svg.static" being a supported feature.
This is still an issue as of the SVG 1.1SE test suite (although the specific testcase URL changed [1]). In the scope of SVG 1.1, this is probably a bug in the test suite which should be raised with the SVG WG (so that the test uses an SVG 1.1 feature string instead).

Thing is: I never quite understood why Mozilla doesn't report any [1] SVG 1.0 feature strings as supported (just checked with the stable version and a nightly build). If SVG 1.1, the current implementation target, is basically a superset of SVG 1.0, IMHO all applicable SVG 1.0 feature strings should be flipped to be supported. AFAIK, that's what WebKit, Opera, Batik and even IE9 are currently doing (just confirmed with a quick test visiting [2] with them).

Is there any rationale behind not reporting SVG 1.0 feature strings as supported? If so, what would be the argument in order to flip a specific feature string just to pass the SVG 1.1 test suite? If not, I'd hint towards reworking this issue to be "Flip all applicable SVG 1.0 feature strings to be supported" or create a new one which this issue would depend on. :-)

Since we're not feature complete e.g. no tref, no SVG fonts etc, we've chosen to leave them unset.
