And throw in the kitchen sink

Whow, this is just gross. I found out that SVG includes file upload and socket capability; if thats not bloat I don't know what is. I like SVG, but, um, file uploading and socket abilities in that spec? Its about vector graphics folks!


My understanding is that the specification team, frustrated with the lack of progress on a spec for XmlHttpRequest and other things, tried to sneak both parts into the SVG spec as a way of actually getting it done.

At least, that's what I seem to remember about it. Could be wrong though.
Yes. Just like HTML5 is all about hypertext features. Like canvas. Like audio. Like video...
