It could, in some other profile. WICD Core does not require support of
those other media, though.

Its not clear how SYMM or SVG could help define how XHTML links to SVG
and controls the execution of animation. It does seem very much to be in
the core chartered scope of CDF.

We agree that img, iframe and so on have less expressive power than
object. This is why CDF WG selected the object element as the basis for
integration - because it has fallback, and because it allows information
to be passed across the interface.

It does not seem to follow, therefore,that this expressive power should
not be used.

Please let us know within two weeks if this response does not answer
