I think putting a lot of effort into SVG is kinda moot now since 
Adobe is killing its SVG plugin for IE at the end of next 
year.... unless Firefox gets a majority market share or someone 
gets a free software IE plugin released by then.

Beyond that, though, most of this discussion is about streaming 
video and audio sync, neither of which SVG was ever intended to 
support.  

I think the Gnash project has a better chance of catching up with 
Flash than SVG plus (whatever other technologies would be needed 
to recreate the functionality of Flash) does, so I hope free 
software SWF authoring tools continue to improve.
