Is it just me, but why they simply not reused SVG 1.1 elements as is
and simply add draw:* attributes when it's needed like this:

<svg:rect x="2cm" y="3cm" width="10cm" height="20cm" transform="rotate(45)"
draw:style-name="object-with-shadow" />

I mean even current SVG viewers can be used to manipulate those OpenDocument 
drawings ?

Also, if OpenDocument drawings needs some more attributes for document 
display,
isn't those same attributes might also be *very* useful in SVG 1.2 !?

I think it would be very constructive to see
what the OpenDocument drawing use cases are
and find some common ground that
would be constructive and useful for both parties.

Just some common sense.

Sincerely,

Fred.
