No, I'm obviously explaining badly, my problem is not with the Image's, it's
with the USE element,  USE references foo.svg#MyRect, the copy is live, so
any changes in foo.svg#MyRect need to be reflected in the USE copy, this
makes sense.

However if there are 2 foo.svg#MyRect in the DOM, which is used?
