SVGt1.2: Text Box

Would it be reasonable to expect SVG1.2t to provide a standard and  
easy to implement means for the user to enter text - to send content  
to the server** -?

HTML has provided an accessible form with textbox for many years.

Reliance on methods that use script produces results that are not  
known to be accessible.

**Amended after a lengthy offlist discussion it is apparent that my  
original query needed adjustment

cf: a form with textbox in html.

There are concerns around accessibility and noScript that need to be  
considered.

an interim implementation** is here:

**
Opera is the primary testing UA, title is used in place of label.
Amaya does not support script
Safari support for focusable may be broken, click on textbox to enter  
text
Mozilla support for focusable may be broken, click on textbox to  
enter text
Batik support for String.fromCharCode( e ) may be broken, workaround  
sought.
