I am glad you think so too. The SVG Working Group, rightfully or 
abusively depending on who you talk to, took it upon itself to propose 
some event-driven network APIs [0]. The version of these APIs that you 
will find has already been discussed on this forum and the SVG WG has 
already made changes to them. The next SVG 1.2 draft will feature the 
update of these APIs. As it was expressed before on this forum too, 
these APIs may be moved to another specification in order to share the 
functionality with other efforts.

Another effort that you should carefully examine is sXBL, now in its 
first public working draft [1]. In my opinion, sXBL is the beginning of 
a solution for bringing XML vocabularies together interactively on the 
client side.
