Does the SVG Working Group consider adding a "Canvas like" toDataURL() 
method [1] to the SVGSVGElement (rootElement) in the future? This would 
allow to export SVG content to raster formats like image/png or 
image/jpeg directly from the browser - a feature that IMHO is missing in 
SVG right now.

greetings
