I think the point Anne tried to make is that you can somehow work around
it if you accept that your workaround may fail in unusual situations, so
here you'd use `svg:not(:root)` and accept that it breaks with non-SVG
'svg' elements, and 'svg' elements directly contained in SVG fragments.
Using `//svg:svg[ not(parent::svg:*) ]` is another viable alternative...
