Ok, so how, with W3C technologies, can I sync sound to an SVG

Incidentally, you're being a short-sighted ass.  Yes, we all
know that flash is most often annoying, but this is simply
because people are using it in annoying and useless ways.  If
the web is ever going to become an application platform, and
deliver the power to publish all forms of media to the people,
we'll need cinematic capabilities!
