SVG strikes me as an excellent example of something that is program or 
data depending on which day of the week it is. XForms probably fits into 
that category too. If I'm embedding such stuff in my HTML page, I want 
to make it absolutely clear whether I expect the browser to 
execute/render it; and I don't want that to depend on which languages 
the browser happens to support. Using two different MIME types to make 
the distinction is gross tag abuse. So "norun" makes sense to me.
