It is a long way from complete, even compared with PDF, as it doesn't
include the semantic overlay, which may not be demanded by an unregulated
(commercial) market, but certainly should be demanded by the regulated
market that is created by accessibility legislation.  (The PDF term
for this overlay is "tagged PDF".)

At least one of the key parts of CSS, which is both most challenging
to SVG and independent of the CSS syntax, is to meet accessibility
requirements, namely user style sheets.
