I think the key things are:

The like-svg change proposal:
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/extensionslikesvg
The zero-change proposal:
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/User:Eoconnor/ISSUE-41
Responses from the HTML WG to straw poll on the like-SVG approach:
http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/40318/issue-41-objection-poll/results
including Henri's response:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2010Sep/0054.html
and Microsoft's response:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Aug/0116.html
TAG comments: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2010Oct/0033.html

My interpretation of the responses is that the WG much prefers the
zero-change approach.

BTW, I don't agree with Henri that this is out of order.  It is about
embedding XML in HTML, and so is absolutely central to the work of this TF.
