Re: Is it possible to use one SVG to contain other SVGs, in a way that also enables the user to copy the contained SVGs and paste them into another document, for instance into ms Word?

by SVG do you mean SVG separate FILES ?

the svg  <image> can contains a separate SVG files...
The <use> can reference a part of a separate SVG files...

Word does not support nor understand SVG, 
so the only solution should be to take a screenshot of a SVG into Amaya, 
and then copy as an image in word.

An implementation, I think...
