Well, even if SVN does not follow moves automatically you can do it 
manually. Get the old version using the version number and diff it locally.

xslt.svg does not use skinconf: namespace, it's all xslt.

Hmmm... you are right. The xslt is ok of used in a skin as it is now, 
but it mixes concerns if used in content.

Then what about keeping the old for: namespace and adding a new 
skinconf-value-of tag that selects directly from the skinconf?

<svg xmlns=""
   <title>Anteater logo</title>


   <g filter="url(#shadowFilter)" fill="url(#gradient)">
     <text x="40%" y="60%" style="blahblah">
       <for:skinconf-value-of select="group-name"/>
