The subject says it all.

Scalable Vector Graphics is an XML specification of the W3C:


Properly applied SVG markup should prove beneficial to various
accessibility applications, even facilitating the generation of useful
braille graphics. Magnification would be another potential accessibility

Should SVG figure in our standards at some point? Should it, therefore,
be on the Road Map?

I'm sorry I can't be on the call to discuss this. But, since we're
nearing completion of the Road Map, it seemed useful to ask this
question now.
