I don't think I have a full understanding of exactly how 'viewTarget' is  
important for a11y. Could you elaborate?

One can add an 'id' on the <view> element with the same value as  
'viewTarget', and reference that id. What does 'viewTarget' add besides  
another way to do the same thing?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<svg xmlns="" viewBox="0 0 100 100">
     <circle id="c" r="50"/>
     <view id="center" viewBox="-50 -50 100 100"/>

Now, we can reference that view like example.svg#center, and the UA will  
use that view.
