I can only agree with Peter.

I have been hearing this css conflict noise for some days now and would like 
just one single example of a potential conflict.

To be clear, a conflict is when a css snippet breaks an SVG snippet..

Anyhow, if I had to choose between svg and css, I'd elect to have css bumped. 
It's a redundant, non-xml vocabulary that brings little to me except 
implementation headaches.

Not only do I have to support XML and scripting, but I also have to have 
another parser for css... I find that cool, but pointless. Whoever came up 
with the idea of adding css to svg should be forced to implement it in a 
browser themeselves.
