Hi Rob,

This would imply that you can use any svg filter in CSS which might be more work for the browser vender in the short term.
Also, it will make it harder to implement transitions and animations since the interpolation rules would need to apply to this new XML syntax as well.

One idea that Ian Hickson suggested is to extend CSS parsing so that XML content can be included in a CSS stylesheet. Then url(#foo) values in a CSS stylesheet can be used to refer to that content.

This would help relieve the pressure to create CSS syntax for data that would be better expressed as markup.
