Ok, I'll continue the discussion, hopefully I don't make a muck of things.

a) For the second row, first column (flattening markup for simplicity):

<img width='100' height='100'>
  <svg width='200' height='200'>
    <circle.../>
  </svg>
</img>

In an <img> context, IE9, Opera and WebKit display <img> differently than
<object>, <iframe> and <embed> here.  Firefox treats all four cases
identically.  Perhaps it has to do with these browsers "inferring" a viewBox
in an <img> context?  Has this behavior been specified somewhere?  Perhaps
[1] ?

b) For the third row, first column:

<img width='100' height='100'>
  <svg width='100%' height='100%' viewBox='0 0 200 200'>
    <circle .../>
  </svg>
</img>

It seems that only WebKit mucks this one up and I can't yet make sense of
their erroneous behavior, but basically we want the sizing that WebKit uses
for <object>, <iframe> and <embed>.

Thoughts?

Jeff
