I, for one, would love to author a simplified version of SVG that I can  
just put with text/html on my server, for what it's worth. (E.g. not  
having to deal with namespaces, XML syntax nonsense, etc.) However, I  
should note that if the root element does not actually become <svg> my use  
case vanishes. (I mainly use SVG for images. Though I guess you could  
change all the requirements for SVG as image too, I do not think that  
would be a good idea.)
