I still haven't gone through much of the documentation but I was hoping for
some quick answers first:

1) Will there be a encoding type that one can use on web servers (for
instance in Apache's .htaccess)?  For instance:

AddType image/svg+xml .svge
AddEncoding exi .svge

2) I serve a lot of gzip-encoded SVG on my site using html:object like this:

    <object type="image/svg+xml" data="foo.svgz"><p>Fallback</p></object>

Would there be a way to wrap another <object> around this to offer the
EXI-encoded version to browsers that support it?  How could one achieve

In other words, what sort of mechanisms can be put in place between client
and server such that those browsers that might adopt EXI earlier can benefit
but non-adopters can still cope?
