The fact that the spec puts a restriction is one aspect. I would be happy to know the rationale for it. But I think such restriction however could be removed. From an implementation point of view, we've done it in GPAC [1], it perfectly makes sense to consider SVG as an additional track to a video/audio media. It can be used for subtitling (yet another format), animated graphics (think about dynamic and synchronized ads, ...), regions of interests (See for example [2]).

That's a separate issue on which we could also argue.
