Remove SVG glyph-orientation-horizontal and glyph-orientation-vertical properties. CSS Writing Modes evolved since SVG has forked its old specification and add these properties.

Since the usage of these properties are low enough that simply removing them should simplify the work for both browser developers and web developers. Web developers can now use CSS text-orientation property for SVG text.
