Hello Jens,

All properties in SVG are CSS properties. "Making it into a module" is
not a requirement.

Although, for properties that are not SVG-specific, or no longer
SVG-specific, they often do get rewritten into a CSS module.

There is in general no direct link between what the CSS validator
decides to support and where  property is defined. If you want to see
a particular property supported in the CSS validator (for one of their
preset choices, as they have several) then suggest it to them.

If a property is implemented and the validator says it is invalid,
that most likely means the validator is wrong. There is no guarantee
that the CSS validator is fully up to date.
