But wouldn't it be helpful to be able to validate static SVGs against a 
static profile, and then be able to say "nothing moves in this SVG, and 
nothing is interactive; a rasterized version will show the same as the 
SVG (obviously much less accessible etc, but visually equivalent)". This 
would then be useful in the scenaios you describe, and for printing. 
(since, if the SVG does not validate against this static subset, then 
that means that it contains dynamic stuff which will be lost when 
printing or rasterizing.)

Probably I'm also missing something :)
