If the effort required to implement SVG is too high then the relevant
consequence is not that some developer is unhappy but that SVG won't
be implemented widely and completely.

I want to see SVG implemented in Free Software browsers, desktop
environments, and graphics (authoring) applications.

The burden is very high already: video, RCC, etc, and SVG 1.0 already
was 700 pages.

It's not specifically about WXS, I just wanted to point express my
general concern.
