We have been testing this for some time.

Our SVG pages ( ) contain exactly
such a declaration. Curiously, we find with common browsers
that one  <object> is fine,  but two often breaks them.

For a more in depth analysis of the issues

The one  browser not evaluated in the above was  Amaya,  because
it did not offer either plugin or  Java support. 

So the outcome of the above would be interesting.
