Hi Cameron,

The SVG Working Group agrees that animating @transform with <set> is very 
useful. We intend on performing a comprehensive review and address this issue in 
the next version of the SVG specification.

Please let us know at your earliest convenience if this response is satisfactory.

Kind Regards,

Anthony Grasso.
