    Currently, there is no support for links in SVG. There are serious technical
    issues to prevent its easy implementation: the concept of linking is just
    too different in SVG and in PDF/PostScript, and full implementation
    is impossible (e.g one cannot have a non-rectangular hot area in PDF).

    It looks very appealing indeed. We will see how it can be done; but in any
    case, it is not going to appear soon - too many things have to be rearranged
    inside XEP.
