I am not sure if this would work or not with SVG. But it may be worth trying.

Try setting the preserveAspectRatio attribute on the document element <svg> 
element to a value of "none".

If you have rectangular shapes as the hot spots on your SVG "image map" and 
you set the values of the x, y, width and height attributes to a percentage 
value it all may work.

Or I could be totally wrong. :)

I would be interested to know if it works.
