So how would that work exactly? every site would have to provide a mechanism
for looking up the description of an element based on an XPointer into the
SVG document?  Kind of like Annotea but completely constrained and limited
in the type of metadata it could return?

There's loads of non-XML metadata about!  And almost all of it more valuable
than the XML kind.
