Thanks for doing that! A few corrections of the top of my head:

You seem to be missing x/y/width/height for 'rect'.
x/y for tref/tspan also apply to 'text'.
dx/dy for 'text' are actually a length-list.

A few observations:

width/height on foreignObject and rect should be uncontroversial to map to
CSS width/height.
It looks like the biggest problem with attribute name overloading is just
x/y for tref/tspan/text vs rect/foreignObject. That's encouraging.
It looks like very few of these map cleanly onto existing CSS properties.
There's 'transform', plus we could let x/y for rect and foreignObject map to
top/left maybe (that would deal with the overloading problem for those
attributes), and we could let rx/ry on rect map to border-radius maybe. I
don't see any other obvious mappings. That's less encouraging.
