Well, yes.  That's a longstanding WebKit bug: the spec was updated to 
better integrate with CSS and they just didn't bother updating their 
code as far as I can tell...

Initially intrinsic sizing of SVG was just totally broken (what WebKit 
implements).  It was changed to actually play nice with CSS (what Gecko 
and Presto implement).  If you think more changes would make it even 
better, please propose specific ones as you have, but at this point what 
you _really_ want is for WebKit to actually update its implementation of 
SVG, whether to what's specced now or to what you're proposing....
