I don't think you want say SVG will be "the only accepted image format."
While I am a strong supporter of adding SVG to the spec, I think it would
be better to offer it as an alternative. Again. This should be fairly
open, and the more restrictions (it must be this way, not the other) we
put on it, the less likely that there will be any support.

My $0.02.
