It appears that too many referencing modes are defined in the SVG
Integration draft
<http://dev.w3.org/SVG/modules/integration/SVGIntegration.html>.  In
practice, it appears that all we require is "Dynamic Interactive" and
"Secure Animated" mode.  At least within HTML/CSS, "Dynamic
Interactive" covers the behavior when SVG is embedded via <iframe>,
<object>, or <embed>, while "Secure Animated" covers the behavior when
it's embedded via <img> or as a CSS image.

Are there known contexts where any of the other modes are actually necessary?
