An friend of mine who worked on some SVG project writes:

"I love SVG and with other standard technology like ECMAscript, it can do
some very powerful things. However its no Flash. Even the guys at Joost
had to use XUL and some weird Video hacking to get everything to work
smoothly together like Flash.

A non-flash player using SVG, XHTML, DOM, etc is worth developing but so
is Gnash. Tackling the problem form both ends, makes sense."
