Could you explain what legacy compatibility reasons mean that you can't do this? Its the default settings, so it would be nice if it worked well. And it would be nice also, if authors didn't have to explicitly say attributeType="CSS" all the time. or, worse, remember which CSS properties are also specified in SVG, miss it off for those, add it for the others. Which is what you seem to be suggesting.

That would be bad; see your sentence quoted above.
