ISSUE-2379 (font metrics): Consider adding advanced font metrics interface [SVG 2]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2379

Raised by: Doug Schepers
On product: SVG 2

It is often useful to get various aspects of a font as it will appear on screen, including the em-width, x-height, baseline, string length, etc.  Right now, these aren't exposed to script, but it would be nice to have a font metric interface.  Maybe consider this for generalization to CSS/HTML as well?
