           Summary: Add Details for Describing Files and Elements
           Product: SVG
           Version: All Specifications
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Accessibility Support
        AssignedTo: schepers@w3.org
        ReportedBy: schepers@w3.org

We should add best-practice examples of how to describe SVG files using a
combination of the <title>, <desc>, and <metadata> elements, including the use
of RDF and microformats.  This should be explicated in the Accessibility Note,
but also exemplified throughout the specs, and in any tutorial materials we
make or endorse.

We should also add conformance criteria in section "D.5.1 Conforming SVG
Interpreters" for search engines, so that they index SVG files, and at the very
least present the text and metadata of the file as search results, and
preferably cache them as static images (to be presented a la Google Image
Search).  Language translation tools (also common in some search engines)
should also be able to translate the contents of the file.
