Thanks for link. I meaned implementation scheme, comparable with code
documentation system. I.e., when special code is written to svg property,
supposed only for humans (properties metadata, desc).
I expect metadata to be best util for that:
These metadata should be for element, rendered as is only as last resort, and
if possible - replaced by inclusion of file for referenced icon.
Another case: icon-related stuff (i mean code) could parse svg "code" for
special tags and insert inclusions and other necessary stuff before to pass it
to svg rendering code.
In this case special tags may be implemented as some extension for svg, but
in this case i don't know, will pure svg parsers smartly skip such unknown
elements or fail on them.
