Jon, Thanks for the reply to xml-dev.  Could you address any reasons why:

  <path d="M 100 100 L 200 200"/>

Could not be represented as:

  <path><d>M 100 100 L 200 200</d></path>

at least as an alternative format.  This form would
be much easier to generate from XSLT since xsl:text 
can be used to append to text content, but there is
no current capability to append to an attribute.

The child element form would only take between two and eight additional character per path over the 5 needed for the attribute (leading space, two quotes, and a "d=") which
seems like a trivial amount of overhead.
