SVG fonts embeddable in XHTML-documents?

Hi list,

I'm currently discussing in a mozilla news group whether it was possible [in
the meaning of SVG fonts], to use a SVG font as a @font-face-src outside a

there is an example using an external svg font definition IN an svg
 <style type="text/css">
        @font-face {
          font-family: 'Super Sans';
          font-weight: normal;
          font-style: italic;
          src: url("myfont.svg#Font2") format(svg)

but it is not defined if it can be recommended using it e.g. in a HTML-file
(supposing the browser supports svg fonts, i know of none - does amaya?)

the actual question: are svg fonts as defined in chapter 20 completely confirmant with
css @font-face src attributes as defined in chapter 15, in every means, say:
can one [theoretically] use SVG fonts in HTML documents?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
