Wikipedia CTO speaks on SVG

Brian Vibber Chief Technical Officer Wikipedia on SVG:

Scripts are forbidden for safety, which pretty much destroys  
animation or
interactive features.

A 10x or 20x increase in bandwidth (and therefore cost) pretty much  
remaining alleged advantages for our purposes for now. This remains a  
low-priority, might-be-neat-someday issue.


Perhaps someone with greater diplomatic skills than me could read and  
comment on the enhancement bug:
