I like the "check the root element" option. That way, one could use
the exact same Document object implementation for SVG and XHTML,
while remaining compatible with expected behavior for existing
content in both languages. Compound documents where both the HTML and
the SVG have a title are possible, but that seems obscure enough that
a special DOM API to get both titles is probably unnecessary.
