It looks like we don't provide any mechanism to provide alternative text in inline SVGs.

As far as the spec is concerned, we should be using the text inside SVG's title element from what I could tell.

The main use case I have is copy.  With IMG element, the text in alt attribute will be copied in place of my image.
