Summary: HTML anchor elements have ping, rel, referrerPolicy, relList, hreflang, type and text properties. SVG anchor elements should support these properties too according to the SVG 2 specification and https://github.com/w3c/svgwg/issues/315.

Bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1451823

I looked at the patch briefly, and I'm a bit confused about the state of <a ping> . Specifically, my understanding is that we don't currently ship it - it's behind a pref and it's off by default ( https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/modules/libpref/init/all.js#303 ). However, we have support in the codebase. But it looks to me like the patch on the bug doesn't really check this pref (unsure if we expose <a>.ping for HTML if the pref is off) and doesn't alter the implementation. At a minimum, it looks to me like this check:


would need updating to actually support <a>.ping "properly" for SVG.

Sorry for the repetitive post, but I neglected to actually make the point I was trying to make. I can't really tell what the intent is from the patch, but I would be hesitant to say that this "implements and ships" 'ping' without any qualifications (in, say, release notes), because in effect the pref will still be off and presumably this means pings won't get sent (neither for HTML nor SVG links).
