This sounds like something that should be defined in SVG and/or DOM Events 
(assuming you mean "blocking" for the purposes of mouse clicks), not in 
HTML. The same problem would occur without HTML being involved at all, 
e.g. if you just had a random XML element styled with CSS which then had 
SVG inside it.
