There's not really a concept of background colours in SVG to date, so I'm 
not sure of the relevance, my use of  background is not in the technical CSS 
sense here, but in the general case.

Certainly this is a problem HTML authors have, I don't think it's a good 
example.  One thing to remember is that progressive rendering has already 
been shown to work in the user agents we have today, they all do it, all 
we're discussing here is how animation goes along, and is something that in 
my mind was in 1.0 and 1.1 (you can see one of my post rec issues on those 
being about streaming.)
