All those exist, it's just that dated browsers like IE don't support them.
Mozilla, for instance, does.
You mention SVG and GUI widgets in almost the same breath. That's a place where
XHTML could help. By being integrated into a common profile with SVG, one would
gain a nice number of widgets that could be reimplemented in SVG but would be
much simpler with an XHTML renderer at hand, tables and lists being good candidates.
