      VML is not "part" of IE5 - it is a rendering behavior. An SVG rendering
      behavior could be developed in exactly the same way that Microsoft developed
      a rendering behavior for VML.

      I would think that since Microsoft considered VML important enough to
      include in IE5, that adding SVG to the browser would not be considered
