I expect that would work, though the SVG spec does require that <svg:svg> is the
only SVG element that is permitted to be a child of a non-SVG element.  I
wouldn't think having an embedded <svg:svg> for the drawing portion of the
document would be particularly onerous though...

Regardless, I'm not sure the OpenDocument TC has any business assigning
semantics to attributes in the SVG namespace that the SVG WG hasn't.

It looks like the OpenDocument TC is talking to the SVG WG now, so hopefully
things will get ironed out.
