Good idea!

I would love to have something like this right now.  I used Cairo to add
SVG support to FLTK* and ever since I have been wanting to make a full
blown application using SVG to to define the whole UI.  If I could query
the SVG document and get coordinates of various elements I could then
create FLTK widgets to handle events.  This would allow me to have a
simple GUI defined fully by one SVG image.
