 From the SVG Specification, Section G.7 Conforming SVG Viewers

...

Specific criteria that apply to only Conforming Dynamic SVG Viewers:
In Web browser environments, the viewer must have the ability to  
search and select text strings within SVG content.
If display devices are supported, the viewer must have the ability to  
select and copy text from SVG content to the system clipboard.
The viewer must have complete support for an ECMAScript binding of the  
SVG Document Object Model.
