Labelling SVG files: publishing updated Accessibility Guidelines

Chris & Doug,

Does anyone have what they consider to be an exemplary or even good  
example of how SVG should be labelled to help people using non-visual  
technologies as well as search engines comprehend content of SVG  
files? this includes future-proofing them, for when assistive  
technologies and indexing improve.

How about a statement describing the same?
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG-access/#def-eq-alt
does not provide examples of good practice.

This statement is part of a w3c 'Note" from 2000, when will the new  
Accessibility Guidelines be published?

cheers

I recently raised accessibility concerns in the SW group concerning  
their ~20 new SVG logos.
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/semantic-web/2007Oct/0092.html
I then subsequently discovered that all my new weather symbols on  
wikipedia are also missing internal descriptions of their content,  
though google does rank them by their filenames, this is not good  
enough.
