There aren't any yet, but the SVG WG is committed to examine the
integration of SVG and XForms. Here is an extract from the
SVG WG charter:

[[[

The principal request is greater integration with other W3C
specifications, such as XForms (to allow SVG form controls); ...

Coordination with the XForms Working Group will ensure that SVG will
be usable as a rich presentation layer for XForms, allowing
integration of form controls in SVG graphics.

]]]

The SVG Working Group has spent a lot of time looking at
XForms integration recently. I can't say when you'll see something,
but it shouldn't be too long.
