A Jon said, I don't think this is the market place for SVG.

Using the extensions getURL/parseXML, you can already do load-on-demande
(custom or XML datas). Those methods are implemented in both ASV and Batik
and should be in some way or another part of SVG1.2.

See previously. load-on-demand can already be done.

To me, simple guidelines on how to author your SVG content such as the
viewer can display things without having the whole document in memory is
also a solution. I don't think (at this time) that we need to add anything
in SVG apart from getURL/parseXML.
