I'm not at sure this is trivial, I'd like to see what the Comm and SW  
WGs suggest.
I've asked the SVG WG to propose or point to an example of excellence.

presumably they should contain some CC licence information, or at  
least a pointer to the copyright notice, etc.

who might be appropriate to discuss this with?
who created the original design?

one further concern is translation, in their current form it doesn't  
seem possible, due to both the design and copyright restrictions. Our  
users for instance cannot read, but might well benefit from the  
symbol in understanding something of it's meaning in a future context.

I'm also considering how to annotate the weather symbols I published  
recently on wikipedia.

Hi Jonathan,

thanks for the hint. I didn't create the SVGs, and I personally wouldn't
have the relevant skills to add the textual information, but I'm sure
the Comm team is more than happy to replace the files if someone sends
them properly annotated ones. Or is that a trivial task? I think it's
great that they provide SVGs at all.
