The SVG WG has never intended to include native form functionality, 
including form widgets, into SVG, and that has not changed.

Instead, the policy has always been that form functionality would be 
provided by a dedicated forms language such as XForms, or by a hybrid 
language like X/HTML.  We are getting to the point where mixing SVG and 
X/HTML is possible in most browsers, so using that approach is probably 
the most pragmatic choice.

We have dropped the sockets interface from SVG 1.2, and future work on 
the topic will be covered by the WebApps WG's Web Sockets specification:

You might also be interested in the XHR spec, from the same group:
