I think it makes rather sense to add the changes to the SVG Animation section [2] directly. This would reduce confusions for looking on different specs just for the definition of the element itself. I am willing to edit the SVG Animation module to interact with CSS3 Transforms. It will mean that SVG 1.1 will not support the new transform functions. SVG 2 on the other hand is a bit more clear and cleaner in general and will support all transform functions of CSS3 Transforms. I don't see any incompatibilities for SVG 1.1 so.

Sounds good. While you're at it, you could probably mark 
animateTransform as deprecated. There seems to be consensus that it 
should go. It's not needed when <animate> can target a transform list 
(as the Transform spec now allows) and it's confusing that it can only 
deal with a single transform despite targetting a list.

Best regards,

Brian
