Yes, the file-name in which the svg is written should be a good prefix 
to disambiguate.

So far, I could not  try that one but I tried glipsgrafiti, sketsa and a 
few others without beeing able to overcome the namespace pb.

OK, I understand the philosophy: as north and scalebar are graphical 
elements belonging to the final maps, they should not belong to the 
scraps but should be put in place at the last moment.  However, none of 
the legend elements (including text but also the scalebar and the 
northarrow, and probably the grid) are exported in the svg file. I 
included the pdf and the correspond svg to show that. Exporting them to 
svg would be the behavior that I would expect, unless there is a special 
difficulty there.
