This topic reminds to ask two other things.

First, do we want to remove the section about color keywords and reference to the keywords from CSS3 Color instead? [1][2]

Second, do we want to drop the SVGPaint interface now? It is already deprecated in SVG1.1SE with a note that it may be dropped from future versions. [3]
