Yes, in exactly the same way as SVG's CSS-like extensions should be
usable in the same stylesheet.

Yes, just as SVG's CSS extensions will have the mime type text/css and
all XML documents (will) have the text/xml mime type.

The mime type here is actually giving the 'format' of the document,
not the likely scope of the contents.

No, see above.

Definitely not; using inline links to style and script sheets is a bad
thing anyway. The way forward is with external links/reusable packages.

This allows us to more cleanly separate content (the data) and
interface (the style and scripts).
