Robert Longson:

><animate> tag works perfectly well to animate colours in SVG.
The same applies for animateColor (except of course, if authors note
out of range values within the animation - here some viewers fail for
both again - indeed there is no perfect implementation of animate for
fill and stroke etc that I know). Therefore no need to worry about 
especially animateColor and to cause trouble for authors using it ...

It would be much more effective, if we could concentrate on fixing
remaining bugs and gaps or new interesting features instead of 
discussing the useless depreciation of already working features ...
But of course, if authors and users get frustrated by intentionally 
blocked features (due to the idiosyncrasy of a few programmers), 
there will be not much interest to help to find and  fix bugs and gaps 
in viewers and drafts at all - usually people realise relatively soon to
distinguish between purely technical and therefore simply to solve 
issues and private problems.
