Is that also the same as how an <img> element's title="" attribute is exposed? 
Because I think of SVG <title> as more like title="" than alt="".

I think this should be defined by SVG, but we currently do not.  SVG 2 or a
separate specification will define default roles etc. for SVG content.  HTML
can then defer to that.
