Right :-). We are aware about the problem, and are working

I went to the W3C site and indeed, there were no traces of CSS
except for CSS-specific tests. CSS style attributes were abundant
in the SVG 1.0 Test Suite, and there were still some in my copy
of SVG 1.1 Test Suite (downloaded about a year ago); but
apparently things have changed since that. Sorry for making
In any case, I believe that the mere presence of CSS-related tests
in the suite for Basic SVG is enough to inspire the feeling
of CSS as being integral part of SVG, so my statement about
"privileged" status of CSS in SVG still holds.

I agree. Our delay in implementing SVG stems from our
underestimation of how widespread it is among SVG
generators. Now we have come to adjusting the priorities.

We will consider it a request for enhancement :-).
