Already fixed in the new testsuite harnesses, for SVG Tiny 1.2 and SVG 1.1  
Second Edition.

According to validator.w3.org the <object> harness is valid XHTML 1.0  
Transitional, so it'd mostly be a question of serving it with another  
internet media type (mimetype). I wouldn't mind, but I think it's more  
important that there is an HTML harness, and we'd save time by serving the  
same markup for both.
