Wikipedia can easily use data:... if it needs to. 
And wiktionary already has a solution...

A better challenge is explaining to a screen reader if "read" is "rEd" or 
"rehD" in a page where you want to define and use both. I claim that this can 
be addressed with id= on the link and a ref= (or similar) on the use. 

But before User Agents should be asked to support this, I'd want to see real 
sites showing an interest. 

Screen Reader vendors seem ok with the current state - they sell the 
pronunciation tables...
