Sorry, I missed this reply earlier today. I only just saw it now that I've come 
to reply to say that I went ahead and checked in this:

https://svgwg.org/hg/svg2/rev/9205059d6889

Basically it makes the background of the doc light red (marking everything as 
"to be looked at/worked on"), adds a "ready-for-wg-review" class (background 
light yellow) and a "ready-for-wider-review" class (background white).

As stated before, the idea would be that you'd put these classes on a separate 
div/span on a separate line, so those entire lines can be removed at the end of 
the SVG 2 process.

Anyways, we can always do something completely different, but I just wanted to 
get on with this.

FWIW I don't think I'd particularly like to have everything hidden by default 
since often things won't really make sense without context. I think the default 
view I'd like to see is the whole thing, but color coded to show:

  * what's still to be looked at/worked on before wg review
  * what's ready for wg review
  * what's ready for wider review
