Hi Stelt, I think we are best to push to get the validator working
better by showing them our results rather than hacking a fix to push our
SVG through their system.

Could you communicate this on their list and show what we have...you
could also point to our code.

This is cool. I would really like to see the validator really validating
properly so we can promote and use all around.

Ideally, we could put a validate link inside inkscape too for developers
and users...but that would not be very good until their validator reads
namespaces properly.
