Thanks for clearing up the thing regarding coordination between the working
groups.

The problem with unitless length "within SVG context" is that CSS does not
solely apply to SVG, yet you want to use a single parser. It gets even more
complicated in compound documents. Also, the CSS WG has its own ideas with
<number>. See for example
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-box-20021024/#the-width>. Therefore I think
they consider it to be unacceptable for other WGs to extend their language in
such a drastic way.

The SVG WG could have required units in CSS context and let authors 
omit them in
the presentational XML attribute equivalents of those properties. This might
still be a possibility as I heard multiple claims that no-one uses CSS 
with SVG
anyway and quite a few people using SVG rather saw CSS to be deprecated...
