[Rd] Scripting SVG with R

Since now many browsers support (ECMA/Java-)scripted SVG, I am wondering 
whether there are already any examples of inserting R code into SVG 
documents (or a Javascript canvas?) either directly, or perhaps more 
likely through a JavaScript layer, to dynamically generate graphics or 
make them interactive?

I am aware of the excellent packages gridSVG and SVGAnnotation, which 
facilitate making R-generated SVG plots more interesting either at 
construction time or by postprocessing; the above question is about 
employing R at viewing time.

Best wishes
