|  Haha, you're ahead of me.  Either today or early next week I'm going
|  to propose something to the WebApps group that fantasai and I have
|  been brainstorming, for a way to apply attributes to HTML elements
|  using CSS syntax.
|
|  It won't actually be CSS, and it will be less dynamic in certain
|  important ways, but it should have the same convenience factor that
|  you talk about.

The idea looks very attractive :-)

Just to make sure I understood the concept: if an idea like this had existed 
before, it would probably have been used to set SVG attributes instead of 
the strange CSS/SVG hybrid we have now, right?
