It seems to me that saying that properties defined by SVG but not CSS 
have optional units while properties defined by CSS use whatever the CSS 
syntax is (without referencing a particular version of CSS) would be 
future proof in the relevant ways... as long as there are no future name 
collisions, which is something I think we all agree would be bad.
