The style override already exists, in the `vertical-align` property.  So it really comes down to CSS saying that replaced inline boxes can have baselines if the content inside them defines them to exist.  Then the layout would behave like an inline-block CSS box.

Also relevant: [CSS Inline 3 has a note](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-inline-3/#baseline-synthesis-replaced) about a possible `baseline-table` property that could define multiple baselines on an `<img>` or similar element, separate from the `vertical-align` property that defines which one to use.  For SVG, we could use the same property on the root element, and then define that the auto behavior of `baseline-table` is to use the values from the embedded file if they exist.
