I don't agree with that change. The last bulletpoint in the overflow  
property definition defines the initial value which is 'hidden' for the  
marker element, this is tested by the column in the test labeled  
'default'. The column labeled 'auto' tests the auto keyword, which  
according to the spec is not the same as the initial value: "Within SVG  
content, the value auto is equivalent to the value visible." (this is the  
fourth bulletpoint).

If you agree could you please revert this change?
