Hi Marco,

FYI, it looks like tabindex is proposed for SVG.

The latest working draft has a section on tabindex that matches its 
definition in HTML:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2/interact.html#sequential-focus-navigation-and-the-tabindex-attribute

Whatever happens in terms of tabindex -- restrict its use to zero or -1, 
or introduce context/hierarchy/scoping rules -- it looks like focus 
navigation is a general issue with respect to multiple markup languages.
