According to the most recent spec, the id attribute on SVGElement is
supposed to be unique.  However, the only exception thrown when setting id
is a DOMException if the SVGElement is read-only. This makes it difficult
to build a mechanism to ensure unique ids.  Would it be possible to add
some extra exception handling to the spec to facilitate dealing with this?
