Yes, I've made sure that the testcase now references an SVG font that does  
have a bold italic face defined. Note that there's no requirement AFAIK  
forcing implementations to do fake bold / fake italic. I've also updated  
the reference image.

It could. But it's not a requirement to synthesize such font faces AFAIK.

Yes, I can confirm that it was generated by Batik (the version we use is  
checked into the cvs under SVG/tools[1])

Traditionally we have only used binary image-patches when absolutely  
necessary, the preferred format is a static SVG image-patch that makes  
Batik produce the appropriate rendering, see [2] and [3].
