This seems like a question better asked the SVG WG.

Ignoring that, I'm not sure how a color picker for SVG would work
since SVG doesn't have forms (yet?).

Ignoring that, the claim is that ARIA is a bridging technology, not a
useless technology. So I'm not sure I understand the point of your
question. Whatever the date is, ARIA will work as a bridge to that
date.
