Henri Sivonen started a thread about SVG as the root element in an 
"HTML" document (that is, one served as text/html, but with no HTML). 
He neglected to CC www-svg, so I thought I'd bring it to your attention:


In general, I don't think this is a practice that should be encouraged, 
but it's not clear exactly what should happen (at least to me) when it 
does.  I would expect that this would tend to trip up the people who are 
least likely to know why it's acting strangely, and with the least 
control over fixing server-side issues, so the behavior should be 
intuitive, especially with regards to script.
