SVG will be included in Mozilla-whatever and I'm sure IE will follow
since it's too cool and standard to be ignored. No, no plugins will be
required, I'm pretty sure about that.

The best part would be to convince Adobe to open source their plugin for
the Mozilla project. Anyone from Adobe around here? :-)

means, nesting namespaces, like QuickTime and Flash can contain each other, I think there
could be an interesting future for this stuff.

Not yet. You can do "very easy SVG" to PDF... but that's the final plan,
