I have no idea what the right behavior is here, but file a bug just in case?

Gecko currently does not support text-decoration at all on SVG text. 
It's being worked on.  See

I believe Gecko simply has no support for those, ever (whether 
dynamically or statically).

Again, Gecko has no support for text-decoration on SVG in any cases. 
You may want to file a bug on WebKit for their issue...
