And then you couldn't set it on a document and expect it to take effect across the entire thing, properly excepting sections which need a different `dominant-baseline`.

The change was deliberate. The SVG1.1 definition of `auto` has more magic than ours: it behaves like `inherit` when you set it on a descendant of a `<text>` element. You can get away with that if you don't have much structure, as SVG1.1 text doesn't, but it is unworkable in a structured markup language like HTML.
