SVG Full (no matter what the version) has always included CSS styling; 
it's only the profiles for mobile or low-power devices that don't.

SVG Full 1.2 will indeed include references to CSS.  In fact, we also 
hope to work more closely with the CSS WG to allow SVG features to be 
used in CSS+HTML, like SVG backgrounds, filters, gradients, etc.

We are committed to making all these baseline Web technologies work 
together to make a slick platform. :)
