Yeah, that is the point!

Like in the ling that David sent:
http://srufaculty.sru.edu/david.dailey/svg/text/decorative.svg
If the height is reduced the text simply get reduced height without
changing the width, so you get a really "flat" text that is not easy to
read and looks strange.

Is there a way to keep the font in normal scale (reduce/increase the font
size to make it fit optimal into a box)?
