Most browsers support inline SVG in XHTML (application/xhtml+xml).  No
browsers natively support SVG-in-HTML (text/html) though Firefox
sounds like it is getting closer.

Should there be a feature string defined in HTML5 for this capability
(i.e. specifically for supporting SVG-in-HTML-syntax) for use with
hasFeature [1]?  I'm concerned about fallback scenarios and for
preventing extra work for some libraries [2].

Regards,
Jeff
