OK, so that was a good outcome.

I remain disappointed that we have not moved on from that point.  I 
actually thought that we had rough consensus that user agents (in 
particular browsers) which encounter inline SVG in content served as 
text/html is to treat the following as identical:

<svg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'><circle r='20'/></svg>
<svg><circle r=20></svg>

Anybody want to put forward a concrete proposal as to what the DOM 
produced should look like in the second case?
