I just mentioned in 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012May/0830.html that 
implementations (unsurprisingly) differ in whether they accept CSS-style 
comments and escapes in presentation attributes.  In the spirit of 
reducing the differences between values in presentation attributes and 
style sheet declarations (and remember that we have already agreed to 
remove the case sensitivity of them), what do people think about 
allowing comments and escapes in presentation attributes?

Once css3-syntax is a bit further fleshed out, we could invoke the 
parser it defines, using flags that allow the slightly different SVG 
syntax that we still need (unitless lengths, scientific notation).
