That's not a problem. SVG can be used for many different purposes.

In any case, if you are only talking about different visual depictions of an
interface, or simple extensions to the funtionality or interface of a
widget, that's something that can be done easily with sXBL. You can separate
out the appearance, and even to a degree, the behavior, of a GUI widget from
the model of the widegt (see XForms).

What Jonathan is proposing is a model view of a GUI that pays attention to
accessibility, and I think it's a good idea; if it's done right, it'll be
compatible with a variety of implementations.

Doug
