<object> only for SVG in Amaya?

Here is a bug reports. I file it here for discussion. But I can also in 
the Amaya bug tracker, if you wish.

Justification:

	Use case 1: Neither HTML4 nor XHTML do require whether the data="" 
attribute nor the type="" attribute inside <object>. Thus one should - 
only for that reason - be able to use <object> without any of those. 
The <object> container can be used for inserting e.g. a table inside a 
paragraph. Is valid. And displays fine - even in IE.

	Use case 2: If one uses <object> for an image or for an svg or 
whatever, then one may want to edit the content of the <object> - to 
provide useful fallback. So, if one simply removes data="" or the 
type="" (or something), then Amaya will render the content of <object> 
- so that you can (in theory - see below) edit the fallback in WYSIWYG 
mode.

Bug report:

 1: Select Insert->Object
    Goal is to only insert <object> as a container, so make
    sure to not select any MIME type and no file to insert.
    You can fill out the alternative text field, if you wish.
 2: FIRST BUG: Nothing gets inserted. 
 3: SECOND BUG: There is no way to insert the object 
    container only - without any image etc.
 4: So, either insert an image as an <OBJECT> - or insert 
    <OBJECT> manually, directly in the code. Thereafter,
	remove data="" and or type="" or make e.g. data="" point
    to a non existing image.
 	Result: The content of <object> displays fine. You should
    now have something like <object>Lorem ipsum</object> in
    the code.
 7: Try to edit the "Lorem ipsum" text directly in the source.
    Save. Result: Works fine.
 8: Now, try to edit "Lorem ipsum" via WYSIWYG. And then Save. 
 9: THIRD BUG: You get the dialog window which offers you to 
    insert a SVG object.
