Thanks Rich very much for doing this work. It's probably just my 
ignorance, but I couldn't parse the first sentence:

"SVG elements having native semantics that are not limited to 
presentation (having "no role")... "

What elements, exactly, are these? Or is the "having native semantics 
that..." a reduced relative clause? Maybe I'm just not clear on what 
"native semantics" are?
