To re-open this thread:

Sorry if I wasn’t clear enough about LY’s export formats. I thought I was clear 
with the distinction I drew between my terminology of « application » and « 
program » from my first message. Sadly Ghostscript has deprecated its SVG 

I was sadly unavailable last year for GSoC, but I have submitted my proposal

Precisely. I’ve already stated that: « […] In terms of colour, it currently 
wraps objects of a colour in a <g tag to change the current colour of
