last call?

Dear svg org,

When is svg expected to be a w3c recommendation? This standard has been
moving at a snails pace recently, and the release of two successive "last
call" specs is disheartening for those of us relying on the new standard.

Because the standard has "missed" the development window for new versions of
ie and netscape, the wide use of svg will be postponed by at least 2 years.
I believe that major players such as Microsoft and Adobe orchestrated this
delay so that they could squeeze more profit out of their non-svg graphics
software, and the w3c has been duped into this gambit.

What can you say to dissuade me?
