Removing an element in a later version of a standard would be an 
extremely unusual thing to do and I cannot find any evidence of SVG 
1.2 not containing arcs.

Which 1.2 specification did you use? As far as I can see, there is 
only an early draft of the SVG 1.2-FULL specification and that is 
defined to be an addendum to the final 1.1 spec, so all 1.1 elements, 
including arcs, are automatically defined in SVG 1.2-FULL.

Alternatively, there is a more mature draft of the SVG 1.2-TINY 
specification, which does not include arcs, but that is not surprising 
because SVG-TINY is a deliberately cut-down version of SVG, e.g., for 
mobile devices.
