Could you provide a citation for this, how does "XML documents" place any
limitation on what a particular application might do in response to a
particular script element - XML indeed has no knowledge of what SCRIPT is.

Also applications such as SVG 1.1 AIUI specifically require execution of
script before loading before the entire document is fully parsed and loaded.

So if SVG is incompatible with XML, I'd be interested to see exactly how.
