the current draft for SVG 2 notes, that role is not animatable.
This is yet another backwards incompatibility of this draft 
compared to SVG tiny 1.2.

Due to animation, the presentation state and the role of
an element may change over time. What should authors
do with such elements? Forget about the role attribute at

I suggest to align here with SVG tiny 1.2 as well to set
it to animatable.
Else an informative text will be necessary to explain authors
what to do, if the role changes over time.
