This functionality might be useful, but the use cases and effects need
to be examined in more detail.

SVG 1.1 has the same functionality as SVG 1.0 (but modularised) so,
your suggestion could not be adopted for SVG 1.1 but the SVG WG plans
to look at your suggestion further in the context of SVG 1.2.
