Yes, at the time of the 1.6 release Batik didn't implement DOM 3.
You can pass the option '-source 1.4' to javac to tell it to compile
such that these problems of updated DOM interfaces included with the
JDK are avoided.  The code in SVN does implement DOM 3, though, so this
problem won't exist in the next release.
