Is it possible to include metadata from a separate file, for example using

<metadata xlink:href="metadata.xml"/>

? I'd like to avoid duplicating the metadata in every SVG file. The example above is not supported by Inkscape 0.47.

You can add metadata as RDF, and RDF will let you externalise a lot of stuff as the fundamental building block is URIs. Is your primary concern just to reduce bandwidth?

An alternative approach might be to combine your SVG files, so they 'automatically' share the same metadata, and then reference the individual components with fragment identifiers.
