Patrick made a list of SVG attributes he would like to see animatable
from CSS:

  http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/F2F/Auckland_2011/CSS_Animation#Regular_Attributes

That’s about 45 of them (assuming we mash together all attributes with
the same name into a single property).  The list seems reasonable at
first glance.  Initially I was in favour of promote *all* SVG attributes
that are defined to be animatable, just so that authors didn’t have to
worry about which ones are animatable (yet) and which aren’t.  Other
people on the FX call today seemed in favour of the staging approach,
where we take a subset of the attributes (like Patrick’s list) to limit
the work we need to do initially.
