Hello xmlp-comments,

As noted in member-only email
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-xml-protocol-wg/2004Feb/0035.html
we hear that XMLP is disinclined to add support for binary attribute
data in addition to the existing support for binary element content.

SVG has binary attribute data (currently expressed using the data:
protocol, and we hoped that we could express it in a better way with
your help) but has no binary element content data.

While we understand the time-to-market reasons for pursuing such an
asymmetric approach, this does unfortunately mean that SVG is unable
to use this specification.
