I started trying to implement 
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGMobile12/coords.html#InitialViewport in Mozilla, and 
realized that even with the responses to my previous mail it's still underspecified.

To be precise, if there is no CSS styling used to set the viewport size (so that 
in CSS terms the replaced element is using its intrinsic size), the 
specification says to use the width and height attributes of the outermost <svg> 
element.

However, the width and height attributes are allowed to have percentage values 
(most obviously, they default to 100% if not set).  There is no indication what 
the values are percentages _of_ in this specification.  This makes it rather 
difficult to make this case (which is the default case) work....
