16.2.5 Attributes to identify the target attribute or property for an  
animation:
"auto"
The implementation should match the attributeName to an attribute for  
the target element. The implementation must first search through the  
list of CSS properties for a matching property name, and if none is  
found, search the default XML namespace for the element.


I noticed this evening, that given the current wording of the spec,  
this could produce different behavior in different user agents  
depending on what CSS properties the user agent supported.

The working group might consider disambiguating this section of the  
spec by specifying if all CSS properties that the user agent supports  
are to be considered in this calculation or only CSS properties  
defined by the SVG spec.

Sincerely,
Eric
