Loading the burden of SVG rendering to the run-time, for a very static
environment like a mobile platform (you don't plug a screen with a
different resolution to your cell phone generally) IMHO not a very
good idea. They may be vector graphics at the development phase but
they should be compiled (translated into bitmap) before deployed onto
the real device.

My motivation is, why should we decrease the performance to get the
same effects, both for UI eye-candy and usefulness?
