[...]

2) Consistency. No other major feature in SVG is available only with
CSS. It seems unusual to have to switch syntax for animation only.

>> Yes, I think that is a good point.

[...]

5) XML toolchain. By providing an angle-bracket syntax, content can be
more easily manipulated and generated by existing XML tools. For
example, in my experience it is simpler to produce XML elements than
plain text with XSLT.

>> Yes, I agree that is the case.
