In Opera yes, it's handled the same way. The 'script' element in HTML has @charset, which SVG doesn't have, and it will affect the encoding. It would be easy to add to SVG as well.

Pixelvalues, well...maybe, that's the "must exactly match the reference image" criteria? Since we have no way (in the spec) of extracting the pixel data it still might be hard to verify. However, writing this now I wonder if it might be possible to generate the resulting image as a raster, and to use another filter for adding this referenceimage to the test filter output in order to get some image that can be more easily verified.
