Hyperlinking semantics for SVG animation

One of several new SVG capabilities in Firefox 15 is support for triggering animations by clicking on hyperlinks.

If a link target is an animation element then the animation will begin when the user clicks on the link such as in this example.

This completes SVG 1.1 animation support in Firefox, apart from the deprecated animateColor element and wallclock timing, both of which are likely to be removed in SVG 2.0. Therefore from Firefox 15 we’re also enabling the http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/feature#Animation feature string.
