In the case of a native implementation like Mozilla (Croczilla), none of 
SVG or XHTML implementation are pluigns.
I also don't think that any implementation specific information should 
be required, or that any specific implementation should be required, and 
AFAIK, this is the case; just namespace qualifications.

Sigurd, you might want to check
   http://www.w3.org/TR/XHTMLplusMathMLplusSVG/#howto-svg
, but I'm not sure if it answers your question about multiple children.
