css3-box defines overflow to be a shorthand property for overflow-x and 
overflow-y, which allow different overflow handling mechanisms for the 
two dimensions.  For example you can set "overflow-x: hidden; 
overflow-y: visible" to allow overflow above and below the box but 
clipped to the left and right.  I don't think there is any problem with 
having this work with SVG too.  Any reason not to do it?
