Well, my point was that since the widgets spec requires support for  
HTML, I don't see why it couldn't also require support for SVG given  
that the implementations I know of support both. By requiring HTML and  
not SVG it is giving some people the wrong impression that SVG is  
verboten. So I'd say either 1) drop the requirement on HTML, 2) add a  
requirement for SVG, or 3) explain why one is required and not the  
other. I personally prefer (2).
