Seems like there might be a problem between SVG DOM extending certain
CSS DOM interfaces.  For those who enjoy rambling, please see [1].

The issue seems to be that certain CSS interfaces, including CSSValue,
were effectively obsoleted without replacements [2].  Interfaces in
the SVG DOM, like SVGColor, depend on those interfaces [3].  Mozilla
has not implemented the interfaces yet (though Opera/Webkit did)
perhaps because of the CSS WG's warning [4].

Is it a "simply" matter of convincing Mozilla to implement it anyway?
Perhaps that comment in Mozilla's code written much earlier on in the
SVG implementation's life and the situation has changed since then?

Thanks,
Jeff Schiller
