I'd like to know if this would also apply to <html:img>, 'background-image',
'list-style-image', 'content', etc. besides <svg:image>. Makes no sense
whatsoever. I agree that for these type of "images" certain features of SVG
would have to be limited or even disabled but just forbidding SVG seems
weird/wrong.
