Chris,

My concern is more or less that "to be released" CSS 2.1 implementations,
would have trouble to keep in sync with SVG Tiny 1.2 implementations since
SVG is relying on CSS 2 (which has substantial difference with 2.1).

Probably a good thing is to identify dependency on "CSS 2 only" behavior and
to provide a evolution plan to CSS 2.1 and CSS 3 features for future release
of SVG specs

Regards,

Mohamed
