That would be my interpretation.

An additional issue is that <animateColor> is not defined to be a
stylable element.  You can see in
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/attindex.html#PresentationAttributes which
elements the presentation attributes may be specified on, and
<animateColor> isn’t listed there.  Similarly, in the table above in
M.1, the style="" and class="" attributes aren’t allowed to be specified
on <animateColor>.  The SVGAnimateColorElement interface isn’t defined
to inherit from SVGStylable.
