I agree that animated icons become annoying but I'm thinking of it from the
POV of teaching SVG
Kids make their own icons - they like that. Certainly they would be further
engaged and learn more about SVGs if the opportunity to make animated icons
It could be a good opportunity but you need the right tools - Opera browser
is the best I know for displaying SVGs - it seems that librsvg (information
from Tomeu) is not standards compliant at this time
