That seems very odd. The SVG defines a shape path and you are defining a thicker path shape. I'd prefer you to honor the real shape defined by the path by default.

I don't know why you would think that. Do you examples of that (perhaps from print), where the text is wrapping but refuses to overlap pixels (or halftone dots) of even a few percent of a blurry-edged shape? It seems like a rather extreme approach that would be the exception more than the rule.
