Chris,

Is there evidence that people with a broad range of disabilities are 
using SVG?
If so are they using mouse alternatives, including keyboards?

Is SVG, WAI, PFWG or any other group updating the various relevant 
W3/SVG accessibility documents?
If so are there any disability groups represented on this working group?

Without that evidence it might seem hard to justify any claims to 
accessibility or potential accessibility.
(in particular keyboard navigation of graphical spaces is unlikely to 
be transparently easy for either designers to implement or users to 
navigate).

I apologise for my previous comments which were attempts to communicate 
using a language which I have difficulty understanding. I've already 
mentioned that much of SVG1.2 is written in a language that I find hard 
to interpret.

regards

*this is a 2 dimension to 1 transform. It may be acceptable to say that 
this is not a specification consideration. However it seems possible 
that user feedback might significantly effect future specifications.
