 From Gecko's perspective, "Animated Mode" is NOT acceptable for 
<html:img>, and not acceptable for <svg:image> for the same reasons.

We also have no plans to do different things for <img> and background 
images (hence there is no point in "Static Mode" from our point of view; 
it's not like we prevent animated GIFs or APNG in CSS backgrounds, so 
why would we prohibit declarative animation of SVG?).
