A SVG glyphs document is always parsed as XML so the HTML parser never gets
called. Script is disabled not by modifying the parser or DOM, but by just
not running script --- this is already specced out.

There's no resizing of the SVG glyphs document or any of its contents,
except for stuff triggered by animation.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to do that, and it wouldn't be that
bad if they did.
