Thanks.

I didn't mean to draw too close a comparison to HTML... this isn't 
really analogous at all.

The essence of my proposal (which isn't really original to me, BTW... 
it's something I've heard numerous times before) is simply a new way of 
grouping rendered elements.

(BTW, I couldn't find anywhere in SVG1.1 that explicitly says that child 
elements of a graphical shape don't render... am I missing something?)
