Some thoughts: If scripting is turned off:
1. the dhtml won't work.
2. the aria role/properties will be published via the a11y APIs.
This means user expectations are not met -- e.g., the thing is advertised as a "menu", but it doesn't behave like one.

It's kind of the opposite of ARIA info missing when scripting is turned on.

Possible solution: also publish whether scripting is on or off.

This is an old issue and upon reviewing this I don't have as strong concerns - if SVG image is reused without scripting it's highly likely that this image would be a secondary content that won't require detailed structural detailing with ARIA and could be annotated on the outer box.

As such I don't believe this is an issue that should be carried forward - if I'm wrong, please open a new issue under https://github.com/w3c/svgwg/issues and the working group would make sure to triage it.
