Hi, Cameron-

  SVG Parameters
  http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGParam/

It's likely that most or all the new SVG specs will use Web IDL.

As we talked about at the SVG F2F, we need to have a discussion about 
what the exit criteria for Web IDL will be, since the implementations 
are actually other specs, and there is concurrent development between 
those specs and Web IDL.  This seems to be a special case with regards 
to the Recommendation Track... should other specs be allowed go to 
CR/PR/Rec before Web IDL?  Should we park them in CR while features of 
Web IDL are solidified by other specs, like HTML5?  Will there be an 
updated revision or version 2 of Web IDL?

Another possible implementation of Web IDL would be an IDL checker, like 
a validator.

Regards-
