ACTION-3606: various tweaks for 'overflow'

RESOLUTION: outer-most svg elements of inline fragments will be overflow: hidden by default.
RESOLUTION: svg:svg elements should allow overflow: scroll to create scrollbars.
RESOLUTION: overflow property on root svg elements still controls if there should be scrollbars but there should be a clipping rectangle that is the size of the svg element's viewport

 <p class="issue">We need to define how 'overflow-x' and 'overflow-y' are

   the <a>'overflow'</a> property has the value <span class='prop-value'>hidden</span> or <span class='prop-value'>scroll</span>,

   The result is equivalent to defining a <a>'clipPath'</a> element whose
   content is a <a>'rect'</a> element which defines the equivalent rectangle,
   and then specifying the &lt;uri&gt; of this <a>'clipPath'</a> element on the

+  is visible on the screen (such as a scroll bar or a panner), that mechanism should
+  be displayed for the viewport whether or not any of its content is clipped.
+  </li>
 
   <li>If the <a>'overflow'</a> property has a value other than
   <span class='prop-value'>hidden</span> or <span class='prop-value'>scroll</span>,

+  than visible, do we want to follow that or not?</p>

   <li>When an <a>outermost svg element</a> is embedded inline within a
   parent XML grammar which uses <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/REC-CSS2-20110607/visuren.html">CSS layout</a>
   ([<a href="refs.html#ref-CSS21">CSS21</a>], chapter 9)

   [<a href="refs.html#ref-XSL">XSL</a>], if the
   <a>'overflow'</a> property has the value <span class='prop-value'>hidden</span>
   or <span class='prop-value'>scroll</span>, then the user agent will
   establish an initial clipping path equal to the bounds of the initial
   <a href="coords.html#SVGViewport">viewport</a>; otherwise, the initial
   clipping path is set according to the <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/REC-CSS2-20110607/visufx.html#overflow">clipping rules as defined in CSS 2.1</a>

   inline within a parent XML grammar which does not use CSS layout
   or XSL formatting, the
   <a>'overflow'</a> property on the <a>outermost svg element</a> is ignored
   for the purposes of visual rendering and the initial clipping path is set to

   is 'visible', and this applies also to the <a>rootmost 'svg' element</a>; however,
   for child elements of an SVG document, SVG's <a href="styling.html#UAStyleSheet">user agent style sheet</a>
   overrides this initial value and sets the <a>'overflow'</a> property on
   <a href="coords.html#ElementsThatEstablishViewports">elements that establish new viewports</a>

 <p>As a result of the above, the default behavior of SVG user agents is to
 establish a clipping path to the bounds of the initial
 <a href="coords.html#SVGViewport">viewport</a> and to establish a new clipping
 path for each <a href="coords.html#ElementsThatEstablishViewports">element which
 establishes a new viewport</a> and each <a>'pattern'</a> and
 <a>'marker element'</a> element.</p>
