The only part that SVGPaintServers could give you is  SVGPattern. And we had some proposals in this thread already. I like -moz-element a lot for instance.

While that's true for now, SVG will gain further paint servers in the
future, like mesh gradients, which I don't think are appropriate to
add to CSS (they require too much syntax to define).

Plus, I think gaining patterns is pretty useful.  It lets you do
vector spriting!
