The Illustrator metadata's still being there would be tolerable.
Obviously, the loss of the metadata specified at upload is more
problematic. I inspected one of these files, and discovered the
reason: it does not have a closing </svg> tag, because it prefixes a
namespace. I can work around this (err, fix checked in), but...

Oh. Hmmm. To work around that I need Perl6 regular expressions.
Failing that, we may indeed have to go to an XML parser. Se la vi.

No, but it's harder than a two-character regex tweak. Ah, well.
Guess it's time to grok XML::Twig...
