It's hard to accept that making SVG fonts the default for tests is
really being considered.

The test mantra at the beginning was to use only the features required
to frame the test and invoke it.  The idea being that if you can't
even show a simple test frame, you aren't ready for the suite anyway.

To make moderately high level feature like SVG Fonts a base
requirement for using the test suite would be, IMHO, very poor
judgement indeed.
