After some discussion at the recent Paris f2f meeting, the SVG WG decided that url-escaping the semicolon was the best method (the XML numeric character reference method was unsuitable, as it is undone by the parser) and a note has been added to that effect, as follows:
Semicolons used to separate 'SVGViewAttribute' in SVG fragments may be url-escaped (as %3B); 
this is useful when animating a (semi-colon separated)
list of IRIs because otherwise the semicolon would be interpreted as a list separator.

This note may be found in place in the editors draft at

Please let us know if this satisfies your comment.
