Sure, but it would be an optional dependency. Both KDE and Gnome use
librsvg, so anyone who needs svg icons would likely already have it
As always, there's a tradeoff between dependencies and duplication of
effort. As discussed before, fully implementing the SVG spec is a load
of work no one really wants at the moment.
