As (since?) confirmed elsewhere on another list, but mentioned here for the
record, the example becomes valid (and parse-able by html5 parser) if you wrap
the svg in mi elements.
the presentation mathml token elements, mi, mtext, etc are specified as being
the extension points where you can embed html (and thus svg).
