I would propose deferring any decision on this until we've reached  
agreement on how SVG inside HTML behaves. That way there's a chance  
that we could simply decide that if SVG if served as text/html then it  
ought to be treated in the exact same way as any HTML element that  
might appear at the root of the document.
