What exactly would the cross-domain restriction disable?  Would this be a

Here is my thinking as an easy plan of attack:

1.  Display SVG content in a web page using Batik.
    DONE! per your example referenced above.

2. Modify the above example that takes a URL as a parameter so any file
could be rendered.

3. Create an applet similar to 2. above that uses a LOCAL copy of Batik so
the user would only have to download it once.

4. Modify the applet and use the JRE to trigger the applet based on MIME

5. Package Batik with a JRE (Harmony?) that could be selected by the user. 
This would include the applet in step 4.

What am I missing?
