Yes. The SVG language already contains sufficient functionality to express the star element use cases presented thus far. 
"Sufficient" is not sufficient. I would call it "workaround exists". By the same argument, SVG should get rid of the <rect>, <circle>, <ellipse>, <polygon>, <polyline>, and <line> elements. After all, the <path> element covers all of these.

The discussion should not be whether or not one _can_ draw the elements, but if doing so is sufficiently succinct and simple.
