I think we should allow foreignObject. Web renderers can handle it. I think
there's a high chance at some point we'll allow including HTML in SVG
without foreignObject at which point preventing that in fonts or images
will become more difficult. Generally as SVG and HTML converge preventing
foreignObject will become less relevant.
