Ah, of course, sorry for the misunderstanding. It's true that given a
processing pipeline moving from a custom vocabulary describing paths as
elements to SVG, from the purely XML standpoint you get in effect somewhat
"lossy" compression. I think that there's space in the exslt.org project
for an SVG module that would render extraction of that information trivial.
