Structural GUI language for SVG?

I've been pestering a number of people regarding SVG and accessibility 
for a while now ~:"

What's becoming clear to me is that SVG is missing an agreed standard 
for describing GUI structure
such things as 'button' 'breadcrumb' 'navigation' 'style-control' 
could others add to this list? and comment?

If SVG is ever to be truly accessible this GUI structural language will 
be essential information.

most obvious is to put anything beyond a label into HTML, using the 
foreignObject element.
