Hello public-svg-wg,

This is my draft review of the XHTML Role attribute module:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-role/
W3C Working Draft 7 April 2008
Last Call period ends 10 May 2008.

General comments:
-----------------
It's nice to see an extensible solution that allows other languages to add  
additional roles by using the CURIE syntax. I agree with Dr Olaf  
Hoffmann[1] that it would be good if the XHTML Role attribute module could  
have some more default attributes suitable for giving a role to SVG text  
however.

I can think of a number of attribute values that might be useful for maps  
or diagrammes for example, but I see no problem in specifying those in an  
SVG 1.2 module.

3. The XHTML Role Attribute
---------------------------
> The following list represents some of the roles defined in the default  
> vocabulary. They are intended to define regions of the document to help  
> orient the user.

Should be marked as informative.

Cheers
/Erik
