I really meant you can count on some help after your proposal is 
accepted if you wanted to include a step that examined some integration 
with Inkscape.

There is no "must" - I only suggested it as something that is being done 
on some other SoC projects and which you could mention in your 
application and shows if accepted, you will be actively involved and 
communicating - perhaps it will help your application.  And your English 
is very good - do not  worry about it.

Most importantly, get a draft of your application done so you can submit 
on time !
