Sounds like you should look at SMIL!
From what I know if SMIL it sounds like the right way to turn lots of
into a simple animated presentation. I've previously used SMIL to make a
simple "playlist" of raster graphics to be displayed using RealPlayer* and
I think the Adobe SVG viewer is also aware of SMIL
Also I'm not sure if they are more than just defacto standards but there
is already SVGZ (Gzip Compressed SVG) and the openoffice file formats use
Zip compressed XML so I'd be extremely surprised if there wasn't some
packaged and Compressed version of SMIL.
If Inkscape does as previously discussed move to using libgsf working from
a collection of archived xml files shouldn't be too difficult.
* Realplayer may have a dubious 'open source' license but I commend them
for at least trying.
