Abstract
This paper will focus upon recent investigations into the possibility of extending the SVG spec to include a <replicate> tag for the purposes of extending functionality into three primary areas: 1. richer classes of gradients, 2. extensions to new classes of patterns and 3. new types of 2.5 dimensional objects. The <replicate> tag (and allied tags like <replicateTransform> and <replicateMotion>) are seen as having a similar relationship to 2D space that <animate> and its cousins from the SMIL family have to time. That is, <replicate> can be used to perform declarative construction of clusters of related shapes.
