The foafnaut is actually a pretty generic relationship browser, for example, 
last night in an hour or so I created a theyrule version

I would just use just id in the SVG element and refer to them with 
rdf:about, no need to use rdf:ID as the resources you create are pointing to 
concrete things with real addresses distinct from just the document.  you 
can of course embed your RDF within metadata elements, and then reference 
the SVG from there.
