http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=getSVGDocument hints that there is some  
usage, but the interface is marked as being deprecated in SVG 1.1 Second  
Edition [1]. I think in particular for embed elements there were browser  
inconsistencies with contentDocument (in the past at least) that may have  
pushed people towards using getSVGDocument.

Anyway, I think we should remove getSVGDocument from SVG2.
