Not having looked closely at it, I wonder if an alternative backend for 
SVG generation would be graphviz ? It should be fairly straight forward 
to map any agreed-upon extension vocabulary for graphics to the graphviz 
'dot' language, from which the 'dot' tool then could generate SVG.
The (probably more powerful) graph2svg tool could then be used whenever 
XSLT 2.0 is available.

For avoidance of doubt, I also agree this ought to go into an extension 
namespace. (I have been meaning to suggest a couple of other extension 
vocabularies, but got trapped in other work.)
