Note that changing this would affect [SVG2 letter-spacing and word-spacing](https://svgwg.org/svg2-draft/text.html#LetterSpacingProperty), because SVG2 refers to CSS Text Level 3 for letter-spacing and word-spacing definitions.

Currently, Chrome and Webkit render SVG text correctly without extra space at the end of the line. Firefox differs.

I haven't tested how browsers implement bidi text and other special cases for SVG.

Here's an [example](https://jsfiddle.net/0zd58omy/) of right aligned text in SVG and browser results:
