Apologies if this has already been reported and worked on but the  
attribute indexes in SVG 1.1 and SVG 1.2 Tiny are not that useful as they  
do not point back to where the attribute is actually defined.

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-SVG11-20030114/attindex.html
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-SVGTiny12-20081222/attributeTable.html

It just lists elements on which the attribute is allowed. Clicking on the  
element leads you to the element index which does provide a pointer to the  
element definition, but not all elements necessarily include definitions  
and pointers for all attributes they allow.

E.g. for the role="" attribute I clicked on "a". I then clicked on "a" on  
the new page which leads me to the definition of the a element. That  
section however does not tell me where role="" is defined. This makes  
answering simple questions very hard.
