Sure, but trying to work around one unsupported feature by introducing another
feature (which by definition isn't yet supported) isn't generally a winning
game plan. ^_^  As long as the first feature is expected to be supported more
widely (which SVG is), time will solve the problem for you without any new
features needed.

Sure, that might be nice.  Could you file another bug saying so, perhaps with
some example text to be inserted?
