Indeed. We have developed some applications on top of an SVG Tiny viewer 
here and the results have been very positive. We would certainly be 
thrilled to be able to do the same on the WebKit platform.

There seems to be a bunch of SVG and/or CDF WG members on this list.

I beg to differ, for development starting now the relevant profile is 
SVG Tiny 1.2. It is also probably the best profile to use when targeting 
a CDF-style integration with XHTML as it has better-defined 
cross-namespace interactions.

And has anyone written up ideas about how it ought to best be done? I 
know the KSVG people have been thinking about this for quite a while.
