I am a bit confused why the security concern is a blocker for `<iframe>`, when `<object>` already does this (at least when embedding an SVG, even cross-origin). `<iframe>`s are a lot more secure because they have attributes like `sandbox` and `csp`, which `<object>` does not. So currently we are forced to use `<object>` to embed SVGs in a responsive, accessible, interactive way (`<img>` doesn't expose contents to screen readers, make links clickable or text selectable) with no way to disallow scripts in SVG to run. Having iframe resizing would therefor be an _improvement_ to security in my eyes because it stops forcing us to use less secure alternatives.
