switch in SVGT1.2 with the attribute requiredFormats can do
similar things as (X)HTML object with type.
If an external resource is not available
externalResourcesRequired may help authors to cover a
situation with a(nother) server having currently a 
problem, the runtime synchronization attributes may help, 
if the other server is just a little bit lazy, but still able to answer
requests.
But there is no specific attribute to cover typos of the
author in the xlink:href attribute to switch to an alternative IRI
without a typo ;o)
