In Blink and WebKit inline SVG elements are handled as replacement elements, same as <img>, <video> or <canvas>. It would make sense to not treat inline SVG elements different from the other elements for these two engines. However, I would like to understand where you see the technical difference to other "graphical" HTML elements like <div> or <p>.

I was more revering to the sentence "It seems that it would be very hard to implement if this was not the case.". The question is why it would be harder for SVG. Treating SVG as replacement element is not necessarily a problem for not having an isolation group IMO. The question is although: Should <video> always create an isolation group?
