'Baseline-shift: baseline' seems odd and unnecessary. 'Baseline-shift: 0' should be enough, and reads better. Then say somewhere that 'vertical-align:baseline' is equal to 'vertical-align:baseline 0'. I think that is more clear than explaining 'vertical-align:baseline baseline'.

Even if SVG is different in this regard, it shouldn't impact SVG much to have it this way in CSS.
