AIUI a sort of child, it's not really there at all remember...

How could it have a transform attribute?  It's not an SVG element, you can't
put SVG attributes on it, the semantics won't translate.

The same with style, consider jimML which has this:

<donkey style="shiny" transform="SendTo(_mop)"/>

The SVG UA cannot use the attributes as SVG ones.

the id on your element probably can't be used like that - you'll have to use
an XPATH selector or something.

It'd be nice, but I don't think the XML architecture is appropriate to do
the job.
