That's one way of finding conflicts, but the best way to ferret them out 
are actual implementations (in this case of compound document UAs). Say, 
to take a totally random example, if Gecko support SVG natively we would 
see if a single engine is possible, or what prevents that from being 
possible. Doing that now while 1.2 is still flexible would certainly be 
very helpful *nudge* *nudge* *hint* *hint*.
