I'd not agree that SVG render problems are due to XML parsing. I think
it's just that anything that attempts to draw SVG according to a spec
must be *very* capable, with all those filters and transforms and
animations and ecmascripts. It might as well be a TeX extension, and
we would have the same (actually, probably even more) problems.
