[whatwg] SVG extensions to <canvas>

Presumably if the SVG document contained an object such as
<rect x="0%" y="0%" width="100%" height="100%" fill="red" />
then, that object would scale to fit the HTML tag that contains it.

At least, I think that's how it works for <embed> , <object> and <iframe>.
