Yes, we (SVGWG) is on board with this.  We won't introduce new
elements that conflict.

(Currently, SVG and HTML conflict with <style>, <script>, <a>, and
<font>.  SVG and MathML conflict in <set> and <image>.  HTML and
MathML don't conflict at all.)

I just pinged Yehuda to check, but I'd wager that jQuery will add SVG
detection to their current context detection if SVG continues its
climb into relevance for webdevs.
