Presumably the returned SVG already has incorporated into it
the result of the parameters.  However, if you want to pursue
an additional method for passing a separate set of parameters,
I'd certainly be interested in hearing more details about it.

If you think it's worth the extra code, etc. that should be fine.
Perhaps an attempt can be made to make it more straightforward than
the parsing of the query by XPath.  I'd certainly like to see it
reusing as much existing client side framework as makes sense.

Do you think the ideal solution should interface with XPath
or XML rather than directly and specifically with SVG?
