Ivo made some good points on this.

SVG is already a damn complex thing to implement, and it shouldn't 
become the "one thing that fits all needs solution". If you need to 
combine two technologies (video streaming and vector graphics) blame the 
browser architecture- Don't blame the components that do just what they 
ought to do.

If you (Sam) put it the other way around: If SVG should support theora, 
why shouldn't theora support SVG? We all know that it would not be a 
wise idea to mix things that don't match well. A video codec does not 
need a vector graphic api.

If you see a need to combine theora and svg, start and design a plugin 
architeture that allows these things to be combined and mixed. You can 
integrate it into the mozilla api. It's open source after all.
