Well, you may double check that by crawling through the ("www-svg" and
"public-html") mailing lists and/or creating a new thread... ;-)

I share your opinion, but please note that SVG in HTML is still being
discussed. A proposal [1] already exists, and there has been warm discussion
[2] on HTML integration (more recently integration into HTML5). Naturally,
somewhere in time, I hope a test suite will be derived... :-)

This should only happen if you have an SVG viewer installed which registers
itself for the SVG MIME type. As far as I know, when default settings are used,
both implementations (as well as Opera and more) natively render SVG.

Finally, I'm not sure if "Concepts" component is the most appropriate
("Compositing" and or "Extensibility" maybe?). Currently there's no specific
"Integration" (with/into other technologies) component, so I take this
opportunity to propose its creation (given that demand on this is raising as
implementations  get better).

Hope this helps,
