One suggestion: If you're going to use simple IE detection, then why not use IE conditional comments rather than forcing other SVG-capable browsers to load and parse and run the JavaScript? Something like:

<!--[if IE]>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="SVG2SL.js"></script>

    If all goes well, I’ll likely use a technique such as the following:

  2. Actually, Sam, the script will NEVER be included in other browsers (the whole thing looks like a comment to any browser but IE).
