A possible solution learned from an Illustrator user on Open Clip Art 
Library: at export turn off "Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilites"

My manual solution: open the SVG file in a text editor and delete
everything encompassed by <i:pgf id="adobe_illustrator_pgf"> and 
</i:pgf> - make a script to automate it if needed.

Those will greatly reduce the size of the SVG files, hope Inkscape will 
be able to open them after the file size reduction.
