Ok, I wasn't sure if that was on the table for SVG 2 or not.

For SVG tools that aren't attempting to do round-trip authoring I think 
the CSS support requirement would be easier to meet if CSS can be dealt 
with as a pre-processing step. For example, run the input through a tool 
like SVG scour[1] and convert CSS syntax to presentational attributes.

Unfortunately that won't be possible if there's no XML syntax for 
animations. Tools will be forced to provide their own workarounds which 
increases complexity.
