I'm trying to work through what this would actually look like if we could specify baseline. I made a simple example:
```
<span style="background: lightblue; font-family: cursive; color: darkblue;">
  Testing an integral <img src="https://pr.gg/integral.svg" style="height: 1.6em; vertical-align: middle"> symbol.
</span>
```

Does the containing page needs to know more than just the baseline to correctly position an integral symbol? For example, what height should the page specify for the image? (possibly `height: 1lh` for one line-height?) Is just the baseline sufficient for the math usecase or are other font glyph properties needed?

Should the `currentColor` attribute flow through the image too? This seems needed for dark mode (see: [this blog post](https://hiddedevries.nl/en/blog/2018-12-24-making-single-color-svg-icons-work-in-dark-mode)).
