Indeed, but there are also HTML versions such as the ISO one, which are not
W3 recommendations, this shows the flexibility of HTML and demonstrates a
method where you can have valid HTML (or even XHTML) documents, that contain
other attributes.  When publishing for a small set of user agents (such as
those that support the Adobe SVG Plugin) it seems to me entirely appropriate
to use such methods as part of your QA process.

I don't publish SVG's other than as a link, I don't believe embedding in a
page at all is appropriate for the web today, however it might be
appropriate in intranets. and there embed is the most sensible approach.
