Why do you think so? It works rather well for generic XML languages. 
The problem
comes with languages where content and presentation are mixed, like 
with MathML
and SVG.

Also, I do not believe the SVG WG contacted the CSS WG in the beginning to
discuss their extensions to CSS. If that would have been the case, some
problems would probably never be part of the specification.
