Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but the vast majority of win32 clients
use a RichTextBox to display chat messages, and I can't really think of any
way to make them support SVG, short of having to find an external library to
just change them back into a supported format which loses all the SVG benefits
and is a hassle. While I agree you should only allow one format so that users
don't have to worry about which version they need for their clients, I'm
afraid there will be a lot less clients implementing this if its SVG.
Like I said, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Execellent. I just took a look, and am amazed at how quickly SVG support
has popped up. Why, it seems like only 2 years ago the spec was being
made in the first place...
OK, I've now decided (unless there is great opposition to it) that SVG
will replace PNG in the JEP as the only accepted image format. Not only
will SVG be open and widely supported, but also allows for slick
animations like Flash.
Thanks Iain Shigeoka and Jim Ray.
