This kind of feedback is really helpful because there is plan to build an
SVG Cours at the WebEd CG.
So, it's good to know that the SVG Primer has the good structure. Thank you
very much.

I strongly agree on that. As I said, the WebEd CG plan to work on a full
SVG cours. To know more about that, see :

   - http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webed/2011Nov/0046.html
   - http://www.w3.org/community/webed/wiki/WSC_proposed_updates#SVG

A wiki setting for the book (moderated perhaps) would facilitate the

Yes, and if you already want to help building such a cours you will be more
than welcome to join the WebEd CG ;)
