It would be nice to have <svg> automatically size to the bounding-box of the
contents, but that's not really feasible IMHO because the geometry of the
contents often depends on the viewport size. For most drawings I think
authors will have to give a nominal 'width' and 'height', or style the <svg>
with CSS.

I suppose we could define a new intrinsic size algorithm for <svg> subtrees
that ignores elements whose geometry depends on the viewport size. Would it
be worth it?
