Had forgotten about this bug - but the omission still bugs me when I look at it
again :-p. 

I think this *will* be a common requirement for SVG usage on the web -
regardless of whether you think flashVars is a good solution its usage is
extremely common, and so is the use cases for it. (BTW flashVars can be used
either as query string - example.swf?foo=bar or as a param - the latter was
obviously added to make sure SWFs can be cached.)

Example use case:
 * SiFR replacement SVG
 * SVG graphic hosted on some content server
 * Trivial JS inside the SVG inserts text from parent page through the SVG's

Query string is not an acceptable workaround. We might have a document with
many headlines - loading that SVG 20 times is just silly when once would do.

I'm not stubborn enough to reopen the bug though.
