That one would, AFAICT, work fine under Henri's proposal where namespace  
declarations are ignored and the "xlink:" prefix is hardcoded. (Although  
if you copy-pasted the whole shebang into text/html you would get the  
characters "]>" displayed before the SVG since the doctype ends at the  
first ">".)
