IMHO, the fact that SVG is XML based, with a full, essentially open spec
gives it advantages that override anything that Flash is likely too offer in
the near future - if you start from a point of standardisation &
interoperability, you can work out performance issues later, whereas if you
start proprietry, you're going to stay proprietry.

There's a point-to-point comparison at:

Cheers,
Danny.
