Dear SVG working group, hi Chris,

the situation is the same as when I posted this. Did you make any 
progress concerning this topic? What was the outcome of the discussion 
that you announced last year?

To remember: I need a means (an appropriate event?) to preprocess a 
graphic (in my special case, using JavaScript as manipulation language).

This preprocessing belongs to the graphic itself, and it is of no 
relevance whether this graphic is generated by XSLT, by the DOM API or 
embedded into the HTML page using the <object> element. The concrete way 
how the SVG is produced is irrevelant. The preprocessing is inherent to 
the graphic, independent of its production.

Before the graphic is rendered, there should be an option to preprocess 
it. The page

http://www.astrotexte.ch/sources/svgonload.html

still serves as a good example, since the positioning of the symbols 
involves trigonometric calculations - for such kind of computations 
JavaScript is an at appropriate choice.

Kind regards,
Rüdiger
