This test is bogus.  In particular, the SVG spec is very clear that the text should be laid out in such a way that the baseline of the text is at the y position of the <text> element, and since the "y" attribute is not specified, the y position defaults to 0.  Thus all the text is above the top of the <svg> bounding box and is clipped out.

And it's clipped out because SVG 1.1 section 14.3.3 says that the default value of 'overflow' for <svg> is 'hidden'.

It might be good to also keep the original tests but change the pass condition to the content not being visible (which IE9 would therefore fail).

If I'm reading that right (probably not), that <svg> element should have "overflow: visible" on it.

SVG's user agent style sheet is applied to all documents, though, not just SVG documents...  That informative text is not consistent with normative text elsewhere, basically, as far as I can see.

In particular, the normative text at which clearly says that that rule applies to all <svg> elements, not just those in an SVG document.

Not sure why this is a tech evangelism issue and who/what actions should be taken on that?
It seems more a discussion in between people involved in creating test suites.

This isn't a test suite; it's an IE marketing site...

Edge now renders this exactly the same as Firefox and Chrome. Given that, let's close as WONTFIX (to mean something like: not worth the effort at this point). 

Microsoft isn't marketing IE anymore these days.
