I was reading GRDDL the other day, and missed this option. Could you
give an example? In particular, I am looking for a way to tell RDF-aware
(and I guess GRDDL-aware and XSLT-aware) processors, which are not
SVG-aware, that the SVG metadata element means what the SVG spec says it
does :)

I can see from the spec how to do this on a per instance level. Could
you elaborate (or point to what I missed) on the per-language level?
