Hi everyone,

Seems like there is rough consensus around this plan. So I filed bugs  
to disable the experimental features for now:

And to do some kind of additional testing/review of the various SVG  
microsyntax parsers (it turns out there are a lot):

Some people have suggested that <use> should also be left on. I think  
to make this possible would require significant additional testing,  
including test cases of unusual situations like circular references,  
nested references, etc. If anyone wants to do that testing, feel  
free, and ideally please document it with test cases. Note: rewriting  
<use> in a completely different way is unlikely to make it more  
suitable for prime time, since the biggest problem with it is that it  
is new, relatively untested code.
