I'm a bit confused as to why you are perceiving this as a significant benefit.  Are you also advocating for a dialog to disable SVG?  Given that there has been and continues to be active work around accessible Flash I'm not sure if you aren't advocating for the wrong thing - in some cases developers to need to do additional work to ensure that solid keyboard access is available, but there is a good bit that can be had for free in Flash also, particularly when using the provided Flash UI components.
