Dear all,

Got inspired from the conference video below here is the epic idea: what
about using SVG as new default format in LibreOffice? It might be not
feasible but who knows - just propose. SVG is itself XML-based already,
supports also well layers. SVG seems to be support embedding also audio,
video (at least Sozi has plugin for that, see also and main page I am not familiar with SVG so deeply
but just propose an idea. It might not feasible in all aspects (e.g.
databases in Base, spreadsheets in Calc) but at least some (e.g.
presentations in Impress, text documents in Writer, especially drawings
in Draw) - at least as an export option. But nowadays are very
impressive ideas based on SVG - some also talked in that conference
video in below. SVG could be more easily compatible also in web browsers
and not to mention that directly usable in Sozi to quickly create
impressive presentations (especially powerful when using layers). When
such zooming presentation features come to Impress, it would be possibly
easier to achieve it based on SVG. Certainly I do not underestimate ODF

At least SVG export seems to be missing for now, only PNG. Certainly PNG
should remain but SVG should come.
