Their central claim:

  With the current SVG 1.1 (and draft 1.2) standard there is no way to
  statically find out the bounding box of an arbitrary text string for
  later usage in the SVG script.

is true, if you do not embed fonts into the document.  I agree that it
makes it difficult to generate static documents from dynamic content,
and be sure of exactly how much space text will take up.  Which is a
shame, since font fallback is meant to be a feature of SVG, but without
some way to adapt the layout, it’s mostly useless.
