I'd like to propose that the <template> tag have a namespace="" attribute that

<template id="my-svg-template" namespace="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg>
  <circle cx="10" cy="10" cr="10"/>

For clarity, is this significantly different from the below (which works today)?

<template id="tmpl">
    <circle .../>

Clearly there's an extra step here, in that accessing the SVG elements requires 
hopping into firstElementChild, but adding new namespace-related features seems
