By "the interfaces" I assume you mean SVGColor and such?  Last I 
checked, actual non-SVG usage of CSSValue was _only_ implemented in 
Gecko and not in other browsers (and we were planning to remove that 
implementation, since it has in fact been deprecated and no one 
implements it other than us).

This is probably more appropriately addressed to the Mozilla SVG 
development newsgroup, no?
