Adds image/svg+xml support to the Async Clipboard API. The current implementation of the Async Clipboard API only supports text/plain, image/png, and text/html. SVG images are popular due to their ability to encode images in a space efficiently and their ability to maintain image quality even when zooming in.


The SVG image format is becoming more common for the creation of icons and other images. This format can be used by: -Programs such as Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator, and other vector graphics editors -Sites that support SVG that may want to copy SVG images across websites such as Figma and Photopea By adding this format, we enable interoperability between chrome and these other programs.
