I would just add that I know of a few recent business discussions that resulted in deciding against using the SVG technology on the client-side because of the continued browser inconsistencies, particularly in the areas of text and filters.

Things are getting better to be sure, but server-side projects like Batik and SVG# will likely be necessary for some time unfortunately.
