Indeed such requirements are already mentioned
in the recommendations in a slightly more general 
form - not necessarily a menu structure, but the
general functionality (how to realise it I think cannot
be generalised for all viewers).

More important than zooming is some access
to all alternative text information in title, desc (and
metadata) elements in such a context menu like facility, 
what is currently unfortunately not available in several 
viewers, especially not in the adobe plugin, what
this is not a good example for a nice context menu
at all. Therefore users of such viewers cannot
benefit from such text information within documents.

See for example SVG tiny 1.2:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGMobile12/conform.html
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGMobile12/access.html
or in SVG 1.1:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/conform.html

About zooming:
"For interactive user environments, facilities must exist for zooming and
panning of stand-alone SVG documents or SVG document fragments 
embedded within parent XML documents."


In one of the next SVG versions, however the 
accessibility support requirements for viewers could
be indicated as normative to pronounce this a little bit 
more, with the main good effect, that authors may pay
more attention on acessibility, as soon as such
text information is accessible for all users ;o)
