SVG does not, and never has, allowed e notation in stylesheets. It does allow it in presentation attributes.

Thus, it does allow it in *properties*, but only when those properties are used outside of a stylesheet.

Yes, getting rid of the confusing discontinuity for authors and authoring tools was the motivation for the request.
