Thanks for the responses. The way I read this for the scenario below:

" Otherwise, if 'width' has a computed value of 'auto', but none of the conditions above are met, then the used value of 
	'width' becomes 300px. 

Otherwise, if 'height' has a computed value of 'auto', but none of the conditions above are met, then the used value of 'height' must be set to the height of the largest rectangle that has a 2:1 ratio, 
	has a height not greater than 150px

Thus it should be 300x150.  Unfortunately, we are unsure if this expected behavior. We are not seeing this behavior anywhere else in HTML.  

Either way this is a key scenario for the vendors to agree upon, so let's do so.

It's also worth noting that a bunch of the requirements that browser vendors brought up in discussions in CDF actually ended up being addressed by clarifications in other specs.  In particular, a bunch is specified in HTML5 and in CSS 2.1 that was not specified then.

In particular, for this case, I think the sizing behavior for SVG-in-HTML is pretty clearly defined by sections 10.3.2 and 10.6.2 of CSS 2.1:
and by the SVG specification, probably most importantly:

Since the *svg* element defaults to width="100%" and height="100%", the size of the svg element in this case is defined by the behavior of percentage widths and heights in CSS, and then the size of the rect follows from that according to the rules in the SVG spec.
