Mine are in Firefox.

Sure, if they should mostly be scaled to the same size. I just didn't
make that assumption.

Indeed. Now I'm confused, because this example seems to mean I got
several things wrong earlier today. First, it seems one *can* scale an
SVG image by setting attributes on the <object> element, not just by
scaling the container element as I thought. At least in FF and
Chrome. And second, Org passes attributes from #+attr_html to the
<object> element, not to the container <div> as I wrote, though I could
have sworn that was what I saw when I tested today. On that note, I
think I'll go to bed... But first:

Me too. At least, I cannot think of any obvious disadvantages, and it
could be helpful if you want all or most of your SVGs to be scaled to
the same size (or otherwise styled the same way). Particularly if you
need to distinguish them from <object> tags embedding other media, like

(If you're *not* using <object> for anything beside SVGs, or at least
not in <div class="figure"> environments, you could just style objects,
couldn't you?  e.g.:

  object { width: 200px; }

or slightly safer

  .figure object { width: 200px; }

But I agree that an explicit 'svg' class could be better.)
