Jim,
"When CSS is deprecated" ??? Given the momentum around Compound Documents 
at the W3C, my guess is that the movement will be more towards coming up 
with a common sense approach to apply CSS across cross-namespace documents 
(e.g., one document containing both XHTML and SVG) versus deprecating CSS's 
use with SVG.
