Well yes this is what I want to do... I want to create an object (for
example a square) with some attributes (height, width, color etc) and
then reuse that object but with diffrent scalings and if possible with
diffrent colors.

Say for example I want to draw a chessboard with pieces. Can I then
create a piece (a horse for example) and then draw it four times on the
board (two white, and two black) and to illustrate the piece been taken
of the board draw it in a smaller size on the side of the board.

In you example you use Javascript to do the actual groupings of objects
but is it possible to do the same thing in 'pure' SVG?
