Surely the real problem here is that Java already has networking
APIs.  This feature is not a Document Object Model feature; it
is a viewing platform object model feature, and it is largely
premised on the idea that there is only one language binding
that matters: ECMAScript (commonly called JavaScript) - i.e.
SVG describes an application platform, and that platform uses
ECMAScript - it no longer describes a document language.
