Firefox 1.1 to feature SVG support?

Firefix 1.1 will likely feature native SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) support.
But perhaps more interesting than that is the possibility of mixing SVG graphic elements directly into the markup of regular XHTML pages, freeing vector graphics from the small rectangle of a browser plugin and opening up a host of exciting new possibilities for web developers. This is enabled by the integration of SVG directly into the Gecko rendering engine, instead of as a browser plugin.
