Couldn't it be useful to make the prefetch element similar to the
discard element in the next SVG version by adding a begin 
(and maybe an end attribute) and to use it to store the prefetched 
content to put everything into the SVG document needed to 
realise the 'streaming' only using declarative methods
within the viewer?

If prefetch is used for fragments referenced with use or for
complete SVG documents with the element animation or
audio or video elements for those format types, the author
could simply indicate, when to fetch fragments or documents
with the prefetch and when to discard them with the discard
element.

Additionally if the prefetched content of a prefetch element
could be referenced with a fragment identifier on the 
prefetch element instead of referencing the URI of the original 
resource directly again, either discard can be used to remove the 
prefetched 'content' or an end attribute on the prefetch element 
can be used to discard the stored information within the same 
element.
