Yes, and if everything that has a draft and an implementation in Webkit
had a test suite and a Recommendation and would work in all the latest
relevant implementations as you would expect from Recommendation and the
test suite, we would be a lot better off. Note in particular that Webkit
had an implementation of a CSS Variables proposal four years ago already
and, as I recall it, dropped it due to lack of interest. If solidColor
is working good currently, and if the SVG WG indeed plans to complete
SVG 2.0 in half a year from now, CSS Variables do not really affect what
should become of solidColor in SVG 2.0.
