Is there a common practice for writing rel="canonical" in SVG?

Hi SVG folks,

rel="canonical"[1] in HTML's <link> element identifies the canonical 
page (or the preferred URL) of the current content. I am wondering 
what's the most commonly used equivalent of HTML's rel="canonocial" in SVG.

The SVG1.2 tiny spec about <metadata> mentions Dublin Core, and

<metadata>
<rdf:RDF>
<dc:identifier>%URL%</dc:identifier>
</rdf:RDF>
</metadata>

seems like a way to do so, but I doubt this is commonly used. Any 
alternative?

The feature could be as useful as rel="canonical" in HTML for indexing, 
I guess.

Sorry if this has been asked before. I didn't dig much into the history...
