Re: Redo of the SVG Accessibility Appendix

Thanks Jason.  I will take a to-do to reference the corresponding WCAG 
requirements. I fixed the spelling error. :-)

I agree. If we have at least an early draft (and a stable URI) to cite 
before SVG 2.0 moves to the next stage of the W3C process, we should 
include it as an informative reference in the appendix.

Also, to clarify why the designated features of SVG are relevant to 
accessibility, it may be helpful to cite pertinent WCAG 2.0 guidelines in 
the first part of the appendix. For example, the features that support 
keyboard interaction assist in the implementation of guideline 2.1; the 
WAI-ARIA support pertains to guideline 4.1.2, etc.

In section E.1, first paragraph, for “accessibility relates 
specifications” read “accessibility related specifications”. I didn’t 
notice any other errors.
