That's helpful, thank you, Leonard.

I agree text wrap/flow is an issue, but we've gotta go with something in the
near term. Some experimentation will tell us if text wrap/flow is a critical

I expect that we're not going to tie the solution to SVG 1.1 vs 2.0 -- we'll
stay vague there so that people can upgrade when the time comes.

We'll just need to put some warning text in the spec about overflow/text wrap
in the meantime.
