It's actually not that bad... I think I do something similar here:
  http://schepers.cc/svg/blendups/scriptbridge/scriptbridge.html

This is definitely something to clear up in the SVG Integration

SVG (and vice versa) from outside the embedding context.  I wonder if 
this should have cross-domain restrictions?
