Support SVG as an image format
SVG should be supported as a regular image format, just like PNG or JPEG. For browser compatibility it should probably use the <object/> tag for SVG content.
Plone should also allow the upload of SVG content.
SVG could also be used as image backgrounds (e.g. CSS)
Finally (as a goodie), Plone should be able to index SVG content, but the general SVG support is more important.
SVG support would be great as it would allow for interactive graphic such as hyperlink etc.

SVG support looks pretty certain for IE9, unfortunately IE9 will be Vista or later only. Adobe's SVG plugin is okay for simple SVG's on older IE's and it is certainly quicker than Google's SVG toolkit which ain't fast on IE :(
When the SVG Web toolkit is finished this can also be used in Plone to provide SVG for Internet Explorer in an easy way: http://code.google.com/p/sgweb/

right - SVG in a CSS background works currently in Opera, maybe in Webkit/Safari. However, all of the browsers that are currently implementing SVG (this is all browsers except IE) plan to fully support SVG as a first class citizen image format.

I'm not sure it's possible to use SVG in a CSS background-image or similar, at last not in a meaningful cross-browse way. In either case, if your browser supports it, Plone supports it. ;)
