Can anyone shed some light on what BNF actually is?  It seems that 
there's no such thing as a standard BNF notation, and if there is, this 
isn't it:


I found Parse::EBNF, which implies that the w3c has their own idea about 
what bnf is, but it appears that the SVG committee didn't get that 

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a
desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
