I think such tests would be useful, but I'm not aware of any fully  
covering testsuite for that. Have you asked on www-style too? It's  
probably possible to convert the CSS2.1 testsuite[1] to use svg elements  
without too much trouble, though that would miss out on the properties  
defined in the SVG spec(s) and not all properties in CSS2.1 apply to svg  

As a somewhat related feature request, it would be nice if Inkscape  
stopped outputting style attributes with tons of properties with their  
default values specified. And it would be really nice if Inkscape could  
optionally gather common styles in a <style> element and use e.g class  
selectors to apply it to the proper elements.
