I don't know why you are in such a hurry to pit technologies that were 
designed to be complimentary against each other. It is _significantly_ 
easier to make web documents that resize properly across user agents in 
XHTML. Scaling is not always what you want. Sometimes you want 
constrain-based layout and XHTML has it and SVG does not. Sometimes you 
want forms widgets and XForms have them and SVG does not. Sometimes you 
want windows, menus, toolbars, etc. XUL has them. SVG does not. And 
sometimes you want vector graphics. SVG has them. The others do not.
