The spec is supposed to be frozen while in CR, so that implementors have
the chance of implementing the spec. New features are best left until the
next version of the spec.

In your opinion. There are, however, valid use cases for the effect. In
any case, having the property separate, as in CSS3 Text, rather than mixed
with other values, as in CSS1 and CSS2, means that as a user you can
forcably disable all blinking with a single CSS rule, so the new property
is actually a good idea.

Many CSS UAs will not have SVG support, but may still be interested in
shadow effects.
