ISSUE-2377: Fonts in external use subtrees [SVG Tiny 1.2]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2377

Raised by: Erik Dahlström
On product: SVG Tiny 1.2

The test[1] references a text element from another svg, and that svg file has an inline svgfont called "MyFont". The referenced text element has 'font-family' set to use the 'MyFont' font.

The main svg file doesn't have that font however, since it wasn't part of the referenced subtree, and so the text element's font-family simply won't be found when rendered in the main svg.

I can't find anywhere in the 1.2T spec that requires the behaviour that this particular subtest is testing.

I'd like to get this clarified.
