There is certainly most of the functionality present in ASV version 3 but it would be really nice to have a complete SVG 1.0 implementation.
Happily, there are signs that interest in further development of the Adobe SVG Viewer is perhaps picking up again. But the hiatus in its development certainly caused a slowing of SVG's momentum.
