Hi Brian,

It is not terrible but if we do allow role on every element in SVG it will
often be for not as there will be no mapping to platform accessibility
services. We would cover this in the SVG User Agent Implementation Guide
but the web author would likely not look at it.

It is easy to add the aria attributes to all the elements. It would not
take more than 10 minutes to do it and rebuild.

Hi Rich,

Thanks for your prompt response.

<radius> and <rendering-intent> are not elements. If HTML allows role on
<title> and <meta>, is there an issue with allowing it on <desc> in SVG?
Or have I misunderstood HTML?

I'm just trying to understand what the benefit is of disallowing these
attributes?

That's right, we didn't agree to anything. We decided to wait for your
input.

Yes, please see the original discussion.[1][2]

Thanks,

Brian
