Hi, Cameron-

Your project looks very interesting, and could be extremely promising (at
the risk of turning SVG into a programming language ;-) ; I'm looking
forward to seeing the finished product. Implementations are always more
compelling than simple explanations, and this is very good in that regard.

I think that what I'm proposing, though, is a much simpler case than the
scope of your project. I'm interested to hear any technical rationales
against the basic attribute access in templates that I've requested.
