  • Yes, SVG sucks in many ways.
  • Yes, SVG should be replaced with something lighter for desktop icons, UIs...
  • But if you compare filesize you should compare SVGZ with with your files.
  • The example with the invalid SVG color "#FF000080" is a bad example. Different handling of invalid files is not a bug but a design decision to show some thing at all.

  • Have you looked at the old SVG-Mobile?

Btw. All well known vector file formats have the tendency to become to monsters over time. Ave a look at PS, EPS, PDF and font file formats. And most of the time Adobe was involved.
