Thought

If we cannot have nice new flow control <objects> in SVG as it would over  
complicate the language and we're working on using CSS to patch things up  
a bit.. Why not have Inline HTML? I can work the other way around with  
Inline SVG, so how about adding HTML code to be inline in SVG. I'd say  
that would solve quite some issues. It would also be vastly easier to  
maintain the standards and make sure things work in similar ways.

I can just add whatever my fancy is from HTML and stick it into my SVG  
files rather than the other way around. I can keep my SVG nice and clean  
and don't have to bother creating a HTML framework just to get something  
to work, like it is now. <HTML> <DIV><DIV><DIV> </HTML> in my defs and low  
and behold, I have flow control, use CSS to get it at the right positions  
and using overflow and Z orders to make it do all the visual nice stuff.

Most parsers can already handle both HTML and SVG and those that do not do  
SVG will not be breaking my code anyway. I guess it could be made useful  
in just a few iterations of browsers.
