My request actually covered both. But apparently you've now removed  
the requirement to support HTML, so maybe I can withdraw that part of  
my objection. I would prefer if HTML and SVG were both required  
because it makes widgets more useful when you know what you can rely  
on, but I can live with nothing specific being required.
