Comment (by LewisCowles):

 @hendridm btw if there are modifications needed to
 https://github.com/Lewiscowles1986/WordPressSVGPlugin to make it
 compatible with other plugins that would hook upload process and provide
 security concerns, I'm all for that, as it can be turned off independently
 to improve cases for businesses not just "downloading and hoping" on
 third-party untrusted media.

 I never knew SVG couldn't be uploaded, or was non-trivial until Chris
 Coyier wrote an article that I thought seemed absurd at first glance and
 seemed to me to highlight "areas for improvement". WordPress was not just
 not supporting, but was fundamentally hostile to SVG, and seems to have
 continued to be with design decisions.

 That is where a lot of the passionate discourse on this came from and
 remains from. It's one thing to not whitelist extensions. I do feel like
 this is now part of a larger set of concerns than SVG.
