I think, it is better to simulate the replication on the server with php or 
perl instead of java-script, until there is a declarative solution for this
specified. I do not allow interpretation of java-script in unknown documents,
therefore this has no effect, what is the core information of such documents,
scripts provide only decorative additions. If such effects are simulated with
server sided scripts, the result is predictable and really informative.
Because those replication elements are not in the namespace of SVG,
conforming viewers should ignore them as not applicable, better to
use an own namespace, if used at all - and then better within a foreignObject
or metadata etc.
