Currently you can apply an XLink to SVG elements and it will look like an actual link (underlined, a different cursor), but you can click on it and go to the destination. We should either make this work or ignore XLink attributes on other SVG elements than A (and other elements in the SVG namespace where XLink attributes are allowed).
Is there a "not" missing somewhere in comment 0? Probably more or less a dup of bug 211916
Depends on: 211916
There is, "you *not* click on it and go to ..." But then for SVG, right? Or will fixing that bug fix it for all namespaces we tend to support?
It would be nice if the SVG WG would explain how on earth XLink is actually suppose to work with SVG. I certainly don't understand it.
Looks like we ignore xlink attributes now. Presumably fixed by bug 334587. Close as WORKSFORME?
Ah, yeah, I forgot about this bug. And yes, in bug 334587 we took the "ignore it" route.
