Is there any chance that when done you would document the process one 
needs to go through? The SVG WG is putting the final touches to the SVG 
1.2 RNG, and as a further step beyond that would be to create a type 
library that would be able to understand SVG's types in order to get 
much closer to a complete SVG validator comparable to the HTML and CSS 
validators that the W3C makes available.
