You can use a user-script with the following code (the first highlighted line can be custom and additional). Simply paste it into your common.js (or other MediaWiki skin related) JavaScript page. You can also edit this (script page) per user-preferences:

var convertToSVGTypes = "meteorology, road sign";
importScript('User:Perhelion/fixconverttosvg.js');
