SVG is an alternate solution should someone wish to use vector graphics. Not
everyone chooses to do that. SVG accessibility infrastructure is a long way
off. What is important is that both SVG and canvas support platform
accessibility infrastructure. I have been working both efforts in parallel.
That said, due to the ubiquity of HTML it is first in the priority list for
accessibility. Canvas is part of HTML.

There has already been extensive discussion on the list for this. I don't see
any point in doing it again here. 

I am going to work with Jonas to provide a change proposal based on one of his
posts.
