please find attached the relevant link and text from the SVG1.1 specification.
I would appreciate this bug being fixed...


The begin of the animation will be determined by a "beginElement()" method call or a hyperlink targeted to the element.

The animation DOM methods are described in <a href="#DOMInterfaces">DOM interfaces</a>.

Hyperlink-based timing is described in <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-smil-animation-20010904/#HyperlinkSemantics">SMIL Animation: Hyperlinks and timing</a>.
