If you are just worried about horizontal centering, you can use the
text-anchor property to horizontally center it over the x coordinate you

  <text x="100" y="100" text-anchor="middle">
    Some text

Even if you change the text, it will still be centered over x="100".
There is no equivalent vertical centering, however.
