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.
