#920 Export instance name to SVG use element

My SWF file has a number of named symbol instances (PlaceObject2 with name attribute). We would like to export each frame of the SWF separately to SVG but preserve this name data. The SVG output contains one Use element per PlaceObject2. I would expect the name to be added to this element in some way such as the id attribute, e.g. <use id="name1" xlink:href="sprite1" />. This is required so that we can still identify certain elements in the SVG programatically. I browsed the code on Github and found where addUse is being called but couldn't determine if it is possible to get the name out. Would this be a quick fix?
