I am okay with the proposal as it now stands.

I'm not *super* happy with the couple of extra-short names, but
they're okay.  I think that prefixing all of the SVG properties would
be bad (because some are already unprefixed, and some new ones share
names with existing properties), and prefixing only some of them would
be similarly bad because it's inconsistent and hard to remember.

I would like, eventually, for SVG's layout model to integrate with CSS
more fully, but I'm okay with that taking time, and it in no way
blocks the current work.

I don't think it's correct, as you assert, that resolving left/top vs
x/y isn't germane to this effort.  It's very relevant, but I think
that trying to match SVG to the Positioned Layout model wouldn't work
very well.
