The current svg-replicate script is concise and useful for many things, so it really should not be that difficult for browsers to implement David's concepts (after they are well vetted by this community), both for animation and replication.

Just last night I was discussing many of David D.'s bright ideas with the main D3 developer (Mike Bostock), and I think (aka. hope) we will be building some of these concepts / capabilities into the D3.js library.  We just need to replicate ourselves over space-time to get the job done well, but we (I) hope then to have an actual implementation in place for much of this, and really D3 is already well designed to do much of this already with simple syntax like d3.selectAll + data + enter + append.

  best,
     Jon
