   The short answer is no, this is the way SVG is designed.
The longer answer is that you can manually compensate for this
by scaling the fonts down as an inverse of the document scale.

   This seems very odd, how are you rotating the graphic element?

   The viewbox establishes the coordinate system for the root
of the SVG document.  The exact way this is mapped to the width
and height is controlled by the preserveAspectRatio attribute but
in general the coordinate system is fairly constant.
