Interesting. Although having said that I'm not surprised.

I agree it would be good to reuse existing markups and DOM if possible. From the 
IRC discussion, I'm not sure which part or aspect of SVG is considered "crappy". 
Finding that out would be a good start.

SVG Tiny 1.2 was the first move away from having a full-blown DOM. I guess it is 
possible to go a step further away from the uDOM. This topic should be 
discussed in a telcon as well.
