I think that is too much to ask for SVG… I'm a bit out of the design scene, but I think hardly any graphic designers (and the software they use) use SVG. Also, as you pointed out, SVG support on devices is limited and probably suffers from the same drawbacks as drawing HTML (slow to boot a renderer). Image rendering is presumedly much faster because you don't need to build a DOM, set up a scripting env. etc...
