Just to support what Patrick says, I find that any dynamic behavior on
use elements is dangerously inconsistent across SVG engines and I
avoid it.  This is unfortunate because there lies the potential for
some powerful constructs.

It's not unlikely that these concepts are under specified, or too
esoteric in the spec.  I haven't looked lately.

On the up side, It's cool that engines are advanced enough that this
issue is worthy of consideration.
