I suggest to RTFineMs :)
Then you could comment on those.

Check out
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG12/#rax-xforms
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG12/#xforms

and

http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2Reqs/#req-graphics

"2.3. Relationship to other Web formats [...]
2. [...] SVG should be compatible with XForms User Interface presentation"

"4.2 Graphical Features
[...]
6. SVG may define a set of predefined user interface controls, such as 
those needed for form interaction (e.g. buttons, text fields, sliders, 
etc). Many images on the web today are raster versions of "web buttons" 
which could be more efficiently expressed in SVG. This requirement will 
involve liason with the XForms Working Group [SVG 1.2] [SVG 2.0]"

etc
