Well, some of those characters get converted during parse time (XML1 
3.3.3), but apart from that, it seems to me that DOM Core requires you to 
return what the author specified, not some normalised version of it... Is 
SVG trying to define DOM Core behaviour? Because that would seem to be 
outside SVG's mandate...
