I saw your change, in response to comment 5. You added:

The HTML syntax does not support namespace declarations, even in foreign

For instance, consider the following HTML fragment:

   <!-- this is invalid -->
   <cdr:license xmlns:cdr="http://www.example.com/cdr/metadata" name="MIT"/>

The innermost element, cdr:license, is actually in the SVG namespace, as the
"xmlns:cdr" attribute has no effect (unlike in XML). In fact, as the comment in
the fragment above says, the fragment is actually non-conforming. This is
because the SVG specification does not define any elements called "cdr:license"
in the SVG namespace.


This means every legitimate use of namespaces in an SVG document embedded into
HTML will now generate a conformance error. 

This is NOT allowing the SVG specification to determine what is, or is not,
valid within SVG.
