Two short remarks:

1. Rather than having mutually exclusive "SVG " and "SVGZ" tables, I believe 
the SFNT'ish approach would be to have one "SVG " table with two (or more) 
different formats: One raw, one compressed.

2. It would conversely be interesting to see an XML encoding for the 
information in SFNT tables (I'm primarily thinking GPOS, GSUB, and friends, 
as each table has to be specified separately). The last time I checked [oh 
dear, that is close to two years ago!], there was only one tool around for 
doing such conversions, and its XML format was completely undocumented. :-(
