They have removed some information from their documentation in recent versions.
As of 4.5, they are only claiming to support the static features of SVG 1.2 Tiny
in both the rendering and generation:
SVG 1.2 Tiny does not support clipping.
That's why the bug reports have been closed as "won't fix". They are out of
scope for the standards they have decided to support.
It might be worthwhile for matplotlib to only use the SVG 1.2 Tiny standard for
greater compatibility. Tiny is much easier to implement, so I suspect there are
now more Tiny renderers now than there are Full renderers.
