Why would you want one?  There's already a half-dozen ways in which styles
can be applied to documents, depending on type.

Properties.  They've always been called properties.

See <http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-content/#block>
and <http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-lists/#markers>

There's 11 already.  If that's not enough, there's always
<http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-border/#the-border-image-uri>

Like <http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-border/#the-border-radius>?

SVG is more than a proposal.  It's a Recommendation.
See <http://www.w3.org/TR/svg11/>

SVG is also much, much better suited to what you want to do.  CSS is
extremely unlikely to do any overlap in this area.

Before you think of any more suggestions that will be "ignored", you may
want to do a little more reading.
