something triggered my brain into checking if 'cursor:none' is in SVG 
1.2 proposal as i only vagely proposed a long time ago (see below):

And i found out it is not.
So therefore i propose it more explicitely this time:


anecdote of how i got to this:
I used SVG once for scrolling by a long list of names (like the credits 
at the end of a movie) for a room with more than 1000 people.
Luckily nobody noticed the cursor of which only 1 pixel was visible in 
the downright corner :-)

You could set the cursor property to a URI pointing to a fully
transparent image. But you probably want a solution, not a workaround;
in SVG 1.0, there seems to be no value of "none" for property "cursor";
is that what you want?
