I'd love to have interactive stuff. To be honest, the current state of the
art is pretty woeful even for static SVG, but I don't think interactitvity
is actually worse. I have a couple of test cases for animation at
http://svg-access-w3cg.github.io/svg-a11y-tests/index.html and more are
welcome. For more complex stuff, if it is licensed freely for playing and
sharing please add them to the repo or send them to me and ask me to do
