    Can you please let me know what this "concrete collision with the
CSS2.0/2.1 box model" is?  As has been discussed SVG clearly does not
require the entire CSS Box model, but I don't think anyone has shown
an actual conflict (it has been rumored and implied many times).

    A conflict would be a place where SVG says you must do X, and CSS
says you must do Y.  My guess is that if these cases are identified
they will be fixed in SVG.

    To date the most concrete complaint seems to be that SVG says you
must do X and CSS says you can do anything you want (which means that
SVG is compatible with CSS, although perhaps not with some existing
CSS implementations).
