This shows that Batik does not do as well with 
text-rendering=optimizeGeometricPrecision. In Batik, that turns off 
anti-aliasing and the text does not look as good becauce we do not do 
hinting. This is a known limitiation.

You point out to several differences between ASV and Batik, but it is 
unclear to me what is 'right'. For example, the feather is jagged indeed 
(i.e., the path has lots of control points that do not describe a smooth 
curve). So I am not convinced Batik is not doing anything bad there. We 
do not smooth curves before rendering.

Vincent.
