The correspondence is:

  libcairo - Emacs core functionality
  librsvg  - Major/minor mode (e.g., Org mode)

Major/minor modes are not designed to be used in their own right, but
with (the direct use of) Emacs core functionality.  Would Org mode
users complain that it looks like they are using Emacs and not Org

Even the current SVG support code does something like this:

  /* Create a new RsvgHandle object.  */
  rsvg_handle = rsvg_handle_new ();

  /* Do some tasks with rsvg_handle.  */

  /* Free the RsvgHandle object.  */
  g_object_unref (rsvg_handle);

Do you reject this code because it looks like we are using gobject and
not librsvg?

The patch also removes the entry for gdk-pixbuf, so the situation is
not getting worse.

FWIW, if we want to fix bug#35548 (use of rsvg_handle_write and
rsvg_handle_close that are being deprecated), then we will need to add
an entry for gio.
