I’d be happy to give you pointers on getting this to work!
Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about writing ActiveX components,
so that part you may have to work out yourself.

I think you could get away with having a JSVGCanvas running in the JVM
(but not being displayed), and for it to be painted on a
java.awt.Graphics object implemented with native methods that actually
draw on the ActiveX component’s canvas.  Mouse and keyboard events could
be captured on the ActiveX component and then synthesised and dispatched
to the JSVGCanvas on the Java side.

But it could end up being more complex than this…
