MJD> or some such. 

I looked into this. At first, I was going to normatively reference XPointer Framework as you suggested.

However, the SVG WG had made a decision not to reference XPointer (superceeded) and not to reference XPointer Framework either, partly because of concerns over the scope of the conformance criteria
http://www.w3.org/TR/xptr-framework/#conformance
and also because this is not in any case needed just to define barenames.

So I have added adapted wording:


    Fragment Identifiers

        For documents labeled as application/svg+xml, the 
        fragment identifier notation is either Shorthand Pointers
        (formerly called barenames) or the SVG-specific SVG Views
        syntax; 
        http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/linking.html#LinksIntoSVG
        both described in the fragment identifiers section of the 
        SVG specification.

Also fixed; both Appendix P and the spec as a whole are separately referenced.

Published specification:

    This media type registration is extracted from Appendix P 
    http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/mimereg.html
    of the SVG 1.1 specification.
