[GRASSLIST:4989] Considerations for SVG 1.1 spec from W3C

I couldn't help but notice that no one with a geospatial
background is involved in authoring the emerging
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) specification from
W3C.  On the surface, it would seem that GRASS
represents one of the premier opportunities for implementing
SVG for both reading in and writing out vector data.
But short of considerations for geospatial data (i.e.,
projection system integration), it would appear the
geospatial community is missing a golden opportunity.  
Any thoughts on this from the GRASS community?
