That's a troll, right?

I thought it was pretty well recognized that 2D was enough simpler
than 3D that it didn't work that way.  Collisions don't happen, the
two are on different roads.  Most people don't _want_ the headaches
that come up in 3D modeling.

Frankly, http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/ sure looks enough for me to use!
