I can submit it. But I don't know if it is possible to create a magic(5)
for SVG since they can start so many different ways.

Does anyone know how to configure magic so the offset is not forced? (For
example "<!DOCTYPE svg" could be at 141 position or could be at some other
position. Or the "<svg" marker may be at some random place.

I added the questions. But I don't have the answers. (That is why I posted
to list.)
