Although it's not crucial, could we settle on using XML names that
adhere to a specific convention?
I'm a little worried that having:
as element/attribute names in the same SVG file, while permissible,
I personally favor using lowercase words separated with dashes (-).

its a tiny difference but wouldnt that be starting off as lowercase?

The SVG spec seems to be similarly inconsistant (quickly grabbed from the
SVG Mobile specs):
altGlyph, altGlyphDef, altGlyphItem, glyphRef, text, textPath, tref, tspan
definition-src, font, font-face, font-face-format, font-face-name,
I'm thinking there is some sort of consistancy here, I'm just not sure
entirely what it is.
Anthing that is style related seems to be consistantly of the form
and things looking at other things like viewBox and textPath there
really seems to be a pattern, I'm sure there must be a rule (at least an
informal convention) already.

definately makes sense to me at least for style related information
Hope that helps.
