Regarding issue-5:
I'm not sure I follow what you mean with "Any element can be given  
dimensions with CSS". I believe that's mostly valid for elements laid out  
using the CSS box model, if you have e.g an svg <path> element CSS may  
have an indirect influence on the dimensions sure, but for a <g> element  
the dimension is defined by the children of the <g> element. And there are  
cases where elements are simply not part of the visual structure, e.g  
<defs>. I would not expect CSS to be able to make <defs> visible and a  
target for pointer-events for example.

For issue-10, see:
