I would suggest s/determine/guide/. Don't tie yourself down too soon.

As others have said, Line art is *not* aka ASCII art. This section
is only about ASCII art.

The mention of SVG comes out of nowhere - the only previous discussion
was about "more complex" art. The choice of SVG needs some justification,
not to mention a reference. And are you sure about it? Wouldn't it be
safer at this stage to say something like this?
* Graphics may include ASCII art and a more complex form to be defined,
such as SVG line art.

I don't understand from that whether grayscale is in or out.
