Would that mean
   <a xlink:href=""><rect/></a>
to
   <rect xlink:href=""/>
?
Looking good.

What would I write instead of (now invalid)

<svg>
   <text>
     <a xlink:href="">
       <tspan></tspan>
       <tspan></tspan>
       <circle/>
     </a>
     <a xlink:href="">
       <tspan></tspan>
       <tspan></tspan>
       <rect/>
     </a>
   </text>
</svg>

?

Perhaps:

<svg>
   <text>
     <g xlink:href="">
       <tspan></tspan>
       <tspan></tspan>
       <circle/>
     </g>
     <g xlink:href="">
       <tspan></tspan>
       <tspan></tspan>
       <rect/>
     </g>
   </text>
</svg>

I'm not sure about this, but they would have to be changed. Other XLink 
features perhaps?
