Oops. I thought I'd removed that from my message. Sorry.

Ah. I actually don't think that's a good idea. The problem arises in SVG 1.1
and should be solved there, IMHO. The fact that the solution is likely to
require a behaviour change somewhere actually makes it more imperative it be
solved soon, before the features involved get used more widely.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
