For reference, [SVG 2 introduced a `<hatch>` 
element](https://svgwg.org/svg2-draft/pservers.html#Hatches) allowing 
to define hatch patterns.

Maybe both approached could be merged somehow.

Also, back in 2014 I already came up with the [idea of allowing to 
create custom 
patterns](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Sep/0462.html)
 via an `@pattern` rule in combination with text decoration and 
envisioned a broader use for it.

So, maybe the keywords for the Heraldic tinctures may later be defined
 using the `@pattern` rule. But I imagine those patterns can also be 
expressed via Houdini's CSS Painting API.
