Thanks for the bg Steven.

On that logic, I would support the removal or deprecation of
X11-colors in both CSS and SVG. Both because I do care about SVG
*and* I would like to see consistency across W3C recs.

I'm curious what other areas do for colour, where  its important,
e.g. the dtp areas. Any standardisation there that could be referenced?
