Yes, IF it would finally be supported by Microsoft. foreignObject seems to work quite amazingly well in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari: I don't know whether to hope for MS to come to their senses or die off. One or the other, please.

It seems to me extremely ambitious to nest in some brand new way. Compared to the other complexities involved in modern web coding, dealing with namespaces and constraints like this seems perfectly reasonable to me. If only browser vendors would support it.
