Hi, Paul-

SVG Tiny became a W3C Recommendation on 22 December 2008, so it's more 
or less done (there are always errata...)

As you saw from the draft [1] and the primer [2], there is a good bit 
done, but some outstanding issues.  I'd like to have it published as a 
First Public Working Draft soon, and depending on feedback and 
implementations, it could be done 6 months to a year or so later.  It 
all depends upon the priorities and resources that emerge for the SVG WG 
over the next months.

This is more complicated.  We are moving SVG forward as a series of 
modules, which we will hold in Candidate Recommendation while they all 
move toward maturity and implementation.  Once that is done, we will 
pull them all together with some additional material, and publish it as 
SVG 2.0.  I don't have a timeframe, I'm afraid, but I'd like to be 
optimistic and say 1.5 to 2 years.  But again, for your purposes, the 
SVG Tiny 1.2 spec or Vector Effects module should suffice if 
implementations come forward.
