The remerge certainly sounds like a good idea, to bring the two projects
closer together again.

However I do hope OpenClipart.org will continue to use "Plain SVG" and
keep any non-standard application specific markup (be it Inkscape,
Sodipodi, Adobe or any other) to a minimum.  Promoting the SVG standard is
an important part of OpenClipart.org and I expect that will not change.
