Perhaps, then, XHTML needs to be modified, not SVG.

XHTML doesn't have _anything_ about layout unless you mean tables for 
layout?  CSS is optional in SVG, and implementations have pretty much shown 
to me that's generally a poor solution for all but very basic styling.  I 
don't think it would be a good idea to take more from CSS.  The 
implementation feedback from the SVG UA's have already said that the CSS Box

model is more complicated than the proposed solution, so without a subset of

that appropraite to SVG, I don't really see what can be imported?
