I agree, adding SVG support is of interest. 
SVG is of interest to mobile devices. SVG can be of help to improve the device independence of Web content and give a richer experience to users who are browsing these pages.
You might have noticed already that Nokia Series 60 is taking some first steps for SVG support http://svg.org/story/2004/10/21/113212/25.
Nokia Research Center also participates in the SVG and the CDF working groups of the W3C.
I have two questions about the SVG project: on webkit.opendarwin.org:
- How do people see the level of SVG support in KSVG2 ? 
     In the mobile context SVG-Tiny 1.1 is the relevant SVG profile.
- How feasible do people see switching the DOM inside WebCore? 
- How to ensure that adding support for new markups, such as SVG, MathML, etc., will not  
bloat WebCore's architecture?

This is great news! As a developer for both OSX and S60 platforms, I 
look forward to the result. I am curious on one point (at least) 
however: the new WebKit website mentions SVG as one of the projects to 
integrate based on KSVG2, and compound documents are a really hot topic 
for us content and service developers these days. So if the KSVG2 merge 
into KHTML happens, would you be interested in including that on S60 
platforms as well? I would assume you might wish to subset it in which 
case I wonder what your plans may be in that regard or anything you 
might be looking for. I'd certainly love to see that happen, and would 
help if possible. 

Thanks for any information,
