SVG Mobile 1.2 does not use CSS stylesheets, nor have a style
attribute. This is an issue for the "full" SVG 1.2.

[In fact, it might be easier to define SVG Mobile 1.2 without
any reference to CSS because it seems the mention of CSS causes
a lot of concern in implementers]

Reading through SVG Mobile 1.2 quickly, I see some places where
we should make it clearer that CSS does not apply (eg. we say
the "font-size" property is shared between CSS 2.0 and SVG when,
as you suggest, SVG allows unitless lengths).

I'm not dismissing the issue in general, but I don't think
it applies to SVG Mobile 1.2 itself. It's either a SVG Full 1.2
issue or a CDF issue.
