As has been said, that's just not an option (though you can use single 
quotes instead of double if you want).

That kind of size saving doesn't normally buy you much. Gzip, which is 
required from all SVG implementations, will reduce the size anyway. If 
you need more than what gzip buys you, you can switch to binary XML.
