SVG is part of style... it is a module of CSS Level 3.
Since a revision of the SVG spec. was released just
yesterday, it is listed as a headline on
http://www.w3.org .  Also, here is a listing of the
current css3 modules:
http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/current-work

If you really need to specify an opacity for a site in
browsers on the market today rather than waiting for
the spec to be finalized and implemented, you can use
-moz-opacity in Mozilla/Netscape6 , and filters in
IE4+.
