Hmm, I'd go with use your own judgement, and if unsure ask on www-svg.

For the Image Values spec I'd assume that people would like to be able to  
use css gradient syntax in svg wherever you can use an SVG paintserver.  
I'd imagine that the element() syntax would be nice to have there too.  
Object-fit/object-position would be nice for images in svg (and probably  
anything else that establishes a viewport in svg).

As for generic guidelines, things that affect rendering is probably going  
to be of some interest to SVG. I agree that layout stuff is probably going  
to be of less interest.
