RE: SVG labelling issue with ARIA

Now, a secondary question is whether ARIA should implement its own general mechanism to provide multiple translations of alternative text.  But that would need to use a different mechanism than just a list of values in aria-labelledby, which already has a valid meaning.

Correct. Since that can’t be done within the ARIA 1.1 schedule, SVG implementors have plenty of time and opportunity to solve the problem in the manner that Amelia suggests.
