Hey, folks–

For reference, here's an earlier thread that David might be talking about:

https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2015Mar/0121.html

dismissing the notion of interactive content in <img>.

I'd like to hear a more concrete explanation of why interactivity in 
<img> must be disallowed.

Regards–
Doug
