The SVG WG resolved to write a document describing how to store SVG 
content into streaming packets (or cues) whether full documents or 
document fragments for progressive loading of content. I'll be the 
editor of this document. You can already have an idea of what would be 
in this document looking at 
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/SVGStreaming. I plan to talk 
about cue content and associated signaling timing, random access point ...

I think my previous email shows an attempt at providing such demo 
(http://perso.telecom-paristech.fr/~concolat/html5_tests/getcueasSVG.html <http://perso.telecom-paristech.fr/%7Econcolat/html5_tests/getcueasSVG.html>) 
and why it is not sufficient. I'll be happy to take suggestions to 
improve it.
