Hi, Francis–

Yes, that's most likely the course that SVG2 and future versions will 
take. SVG2 will probably be reduced to those features that are already 
implemented (or have clear browser implementation plans), and everything 
else will be deferred to future SVG modules which are focused 
specifically on a particular feature.
