What was the intention* of the Working Group in providing 
pseudo-class**?

The spec as it stands wouldn't seem to be setting a standard approach, 
how would authors use it, if it were implemented***?

It is time there was an SVG Accessibility WG with a focus on Authoring 
Tools.

*HTML provides a standard use case with border, which isn't available 
directly in SVG.

**It is in the spec, but is there a demonstration sample provided, for 
instance in the test suite?

***If a:visited has been implemented, could someone please post a 
pointer to a resource, and name the implementation?

I tried  <style type="text/css" id="css"><![CDATA[ a:visited { stroke: 
blue }]]></style> in mozillaSVG, asv3.1 and batik without success
Jim suggested a:visited rect { stroke:blue }

They're from CSS, and are required in SVG:
