SVG-in-text/html parsing rules do not change change how browsers parse  
image/svg+xml.

It would be useful, though, if SVG image editors had the same level of  
support for importing SVG-in-text/html as they have for importing SVG- 
in-application/xhtml+xml. This will be achievable by using off-the- 
shelf text/html parsers.

In any case, I think a Web consortium should focus on fostering the  
use of SVG on the Web when use on the Web and use in "places besides  
the web" are perceived to be in conflict.
