+1, I'm happy about these.  In particular, <meta> will make a few
things easier to develop in the future (like Parameters).

Parameters would be nice, if we're still talking along the lines of the stuff Doug Schepers proposed a decade or so ago. I've been wishing for something like that (allowing reuse of values in SVG) a lot recently.

Using <meta> to refresh a page.... I'm curious, can one request that a page simply refresh itself locally once a second instead of having to roundtrip to the server? (not using script, that is)? If so then with <meta> and <random> one could do declarative animation of a sort: e.g., http://cs.sru.edu/~ddailey/tiling/CubicFoamMeta.svg works in IE, Chrome, FF. 

One can control <random> with a seed if one wishes to.

Cheers
David
