[Filing on behalf of John Gardner]

We need eventually to define how the root-level <title> and <desc> tags are
exposed to AT agents in an HTML document. It is not yet clear how the <desc>
element should be exposed, but the <title> element is pretty obvious. The root
<title> element should be exposed to AT agents exactly as the <img> element's
"alt" attribute is exposed. However, an "aria-label" attribute on the <svg>
element should take precedence.

HTML Task Force in discussion is unclear in this case whether it's a question
for the HTML spec or the SVG spec, since this is "inside" the SVG element.
Filing this bug to meet deadline but will need to figure this out.
