Obviously it will take some computation to apply CSS layouts to SVG 
content, but I wouldn't want content that doesn't use it to be slower.

Whether the <rect><text>...</text></rect> syntax makes the rect fit the 
text (as I understand Doug's proposal it doesn't), it makes a lot of 
sense to me to be able to have a rectangle sized according to some text. 
  SVG diagrams now just don't respond well different fonts available, 
localised text, available space for rendering, etc.
