It's a bit hard to say.  Right now, the SVG WG is on hiatus in 
preparation for SVG Open and our F2F meeting at the beginning of August, 
and we will discuss it there.  Depending on what the outcome of that 
discussion, this could take 30 minutes or 3 months, since we will also 
need to bring in the CSS and HTML WGs.  But we have been aware of the 
issue for some time, and your email is very timely in bringing it to our 
focus.  We'll try to resolve it quickly.

You are welcome to contribute more, but I think we have a pretty good 
handle on the issue, so don't break your back.  Most of us on the SVG WG 
are also content creators, so we understand that perspective.
