Your test document is missing tests with intrinsic dimensions specified via the SVG element's |viewBox| attribute: |viewBox="0,0 100,100"|.

In equivalent |viewBox|-based tests, Chrome 43 and Firefox 38 both seem to get the rendering wrong as I'd expect |viewBox="0,0 100,100"| to result in the same rendering as |width="100" height="100"|. Instead, |viewBox|-based tests render like your no-intrinsic-size tests in both browsers.

As for those no-intrinsic-size tests, I'd expect the same rendering as |width="100" height="100"| and a corrected rendering of |viewBox="0,0 100,100"|. Specifically, the browser should establish intrinsic dimensions using both the origin (0,0) and the painted area with positive coordinates (0,0 to 100,100).
