Juergen,
Two things might explain the problem you are having:

1) The Adobe SVG Viewer does not support the 'view' element yet

2) With current versions of IE, if you have a URL with a fragment identifier
(e.g., foo.xxx#aaaa), IE doesn't properly break apart the URL into a two
parts.
Thus, it looks for a handler for a resource named "foo.xxx#aaaa", instead of
looking for a handler for "foo.xxx" and then passing the fragment identifier
"aaaa". Thus, if you link to "foo.svg#aaaa", the Adobe SVG Viewer doesn't even
get invoked.
