I would like to second that notion and vote for a return to a simplified
SVG that lots of big AND small companies can implement. If only Adobe can
implement this thing, then it will be seen as an Adobe technology.

It seems essential to leverage off of CSS and DOM to the maximum extent
possible, and to have an XML grammar for vector graphics that follows the
"spirit of XML" to the max extent possible, as opposed to following some
blind alley that supposedly leads to compact files.

Some attempt should be made now to "shed load" and get back to something
simpler.
