David,

thank you for that outlining clearly a significant issue, which can  
be addressed.

Can you improve on a guideline such as:

"SVG is primarily a graphics technology, so ensure text will be  
understood in a context without graphical support and that it is  
coded in a logical reading order"

regards

The other thing that is likely to happen in any document not  
explicitly designed for accessibility is that the text is likely to  
come out in far from the logic reading order, even if SVG is being  
used as a page description language, rather than mainly for graphics.
