Thanks for going over the discussion Andreas. Personally I think there's
a lot of value in using existing formats where appropriate, but I'm
still not convinced SVG is appropriate. Possible, I'm sure, but
practical and flexible enough (without extending it into
not-svg-anymore) ... who knows. I do think it'd be wise to consider
borrowing heavily from SVG where it is appropriate, though, or even
using namespaces and embedding SVG content where appropriate. For the
overall document, though, I do wonder if an ODF (but not ODT) derived
format dedicated to DTP might be worth investigating.
By the way, any thoughts on why Tim might be encountering SVG exported
from Scribus 1.3.5 as a wrapper around a raster image?
