Discussion on: A challenger to the throne of vector graphics. SVG is dead, long live TinyVG!

I've never really looking too much into vector graphics from a programming point of view until I started looking to make a website that was gonna be on a variety of screens. I found the SVG to be rather underwhelming for the reasons many here talked about. Like most things in web development, a lot of it is tied to very old standards from as early as Netscape Navigator. While the underlying implementation is free to improve, the effort to phase older standards out in favor of newer ones can be chaotic. Just look at Silverlight and especially Flash. It's gonna take a lot of effort for any serious replacement to come forward, even if it is objectively better. I like your project though! Very neat!
