I am curious as to why the "d" attribute is mandatory for <path>.  If I
want to output an arbitrarily long path, I have to be able to output
child <data> elements.  However, because the "d" attribute is
mandatory, I also have to put some path data (or maybe just an empty
string) on the parent <path> element.  This seems very ugly.
