I take issue with a guideline saying such things like:
"thin black strokes for individual surfaces of appr. 1px; think black
outline for the whole drawing of appr. 6px"
We work with vectors, so the width is relative to the image size. Using
such width, they will impose me a certain size for the final result,
something I don't want.
Take as an example this image for a large set I am preparing for
submission: http://nicubunu.ro/pictures/games/blacksmith.svg (in the end
it will be colored)
Is it "cartoon"? "outline"? "lineart"? neither?

Excellent question! I wonder about this myself.
The above mentioned set will comprise over 50 images, both with an
outline and colored version.
I was thinking to put them together and the reason was only not to be
seen as an abuser who want to increase his image count (and ranking).
