Further, CSS should be adding a mechanism to reset styles anyway - as
soon as fantasai and I have another free day together to write the
Cascade module, we'll add an 'all' property, which only takes the
global keywords.

Once we then add the 'default' global keyword (lets you reset to the
UA stylesheet), you can just say ":root { all: default; }" in your SVG
document, and not worry about inheritance polluting your SVG styling.

That doesn't help the "import all the stylesheets into the iframe"
part, but shrug.
