In a high performance dynamic svg viewer, the content must be rendered in
paralell to downloading:

( http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/conform.html )
| A Conforming High-Quality Dynamic SVG Viewer must support
| the following additional features:

| Progressive rendering and animation effects (i.e., the start of the
| document will start appearing and animations will start running in
| parallel with downloading the rest of the document).

So consider onload of the root SVG element, the contents of this "will
start appearing" before the content is fully downloaded, so onload at
best can only appear immediately before the last element downloaded is
