Sounds good.

I think it'd be interesting to try to generate the same diagram using
Batik, Graphviz, and 'nothing' (just print SVG directly in your code),
and then compare the three programs. There may be other options out
there too, but I'm suggesting to try the 'nothing' approach, as in my
experience SVG is easy enough to print without a complex object model
like Batik's.
