SVG may cause cross-browser problems.
OTOH doing this via DHTML is kinda unpractical and may be done as an
exercise if one has really really a lot of spare time to spend.

IMHO zooming / panning a vector-based node-tree requires an app that
understand vectors. Flash could be a good candidate in this particular

Though depending on the complexity of your project requirements it can
be done with DHTML. And there are excellent 2D / 3D DHTML models
&libraries around.
