I think what is also important is for ePub to use SVG 2.0. It would be nice
to state that in the content the role of this "bubble" is a tooltip or if
we define a better taxonomy for graphics in the future a "bubble".
These examples also require a means to expose the textual description. as a
scree reader user would be unable to process what is in the bubbles, unless
of course SVG text is used. Is there a plan to use SVG text elements in the
bubbles or will the text be drawn using strokes, etc.?

My first thought is that in css3-exclusions, there are some pre-defined
shape values that can be used as well as being able to reference SVG
elements that define a shape:


Would it be better to align with this rather than only supporting SVG
element references?
