You can embed more data types in SVG than in SWF files. Animation,
Because SVG is based on XML, and therefore has namespaces, it is
possible to use a graphics editor on a SVG file that embeds unkown
datatypes without losing the data.
Anyway, I agree that it is just not feasible to use SVG. It is much
easier to use Flash, even though SVG is technically superior.
I think that Sparkle, SVG and whatever Adobe/Macromedia will do with SWF
and PDF will be in direct competition as presentation layers for web
based applications in a few years.
