Well I probably won’t get time to work on it for a while (at least a few
months), so I think it would be premature to mention.

I agree that it is good to have consistency across implementations!
Now, I think that Batik’s getURL() won’t quite match the requirements in
1.2T, but it should be good enough for casual use, and I know that
people do use it.  I think having XHR implemented also will make it
easier for people coming from AJAX in an HTML browser world.
