I wouldn't be against that idea, but the *current* output of
multi-page SVG files is not usable.  For example, Inkscape cannot even
open an SVG file with <pageSet> or <page> in it.  So IMO, single SVG
files that contain multiple pages are not an option.

Would you rather have a -d option that could be used to only output
the *first* page?  That would be really easy.  What should the -d
option be called?

Of course, an output-preview-framework (for use with -dpreview) is
planned, and that would output the first system (plus titles and
headers) in a single SVG file, just like with the PostScript backend.
It might be a while before I attempt to do this though.  :-)
