In section 
onTarget of the SMIL specification, the attributeType attribute is used
to disambiguate the name mapping between a CSS property and an XML
attribute. It does not imply that CSS syntax can be used for animation

I think this has already been made clear. In section 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-smil-animation-20010904/#ToAttribute>  of
the SMIL specification, it states what can be used for animation values:
"The animation values specified in the animation element must be legal
values for the specified attribute."
For SVGT this means an attribute value that conforms to our spec, with
no additional syntax.

All the best,
