Although I think the usefulness of the <solidColor> element will be 
reduced once CSS Variables gets some uptake, I realise we have already 
resolved to include it in SVG2.

I have a question about the name <solidColor>, though, since it's camel 
case.  What is our naming strategy going forward?  Every time we 
introduce a new camel case element name, the HTML parser will need to be 
updated, and there will be a period of time in which the element will 
parse differently in text/html documents.  (Maybe this is not a huge 
problem, since these current browsers will also not implement the 
relevant behaviour for the element?)
