I have added this to my TODO list.  I am buried under a client deadline
right now, but that *must* be finished by Thursday afternoon.  So it will
be after that.

  Hi Amelia,

  As discussed on the last call we decided to refer to the HTML AAM for
  iframe, audio, video, and canvas elements used in SVG in order to have a
  definitive mapping across HTML and SVG host languages.

  I walked through the common JavaScript code we use to produce our
  specifications and determined that an addition to respec was needed to do
  link expansion to the element mapping index in the HTML5 AAM.

  I spoke to Shane and he agreed to make the additions to respec. I do not
  know the time frame for this but for the next heartbeat draft I would
  simply ask that Amelia place a note on this issue in the SVG AAM

  As for <text> and <tspan> please link to the new text role mapping in the
  Core AAM:

  To get the text role default semantics in the SVG specification we need
  to do another ARIA 1.1 heartbeat draft. Getting that out prior to TPAC
  may a bit dicey because the new ARA and APA charters are still in limbo
  with the AC committee.


  Will we be able to get a heartbeat draft out before TPAC?
