Guys, this is WAY off-topic.

 From http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/
   "This mailing list is for technical discussion on Cascading Style Sheets
    (CSS) and its specifications. All posts to this list must be about the
    development of the CSS specification itself. This list is also the
    preferred place for discussing working drafts that are published by
    W3C's CSS Working Group."

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/ doesn't have a description,
but I expect s/CSS/SVG/g applied to the above would accurately reflect its
intended usage.

Please take this discussion off-list, or find another list where it is
on-topic. The CSS and SVG working groups need these lists to do technical
work: sidetracking threads like this detracts from our ability to function
efficiently and is very inconsiderate behavior.

Also, if you want to argue with me about whether continuing this thread
on www-style/www-svg is appropriate or not, or complain that W3C does not
have better channels for your complaints, please contact me off-list.

Thanks~
