Sounds about right. This is what a Chromium engineer said (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=331387#c5):

> My guess is that the retina is rendering the SVG at non-retina res, and zooming it up 2x. So it's still a "zoom", just implicit (in the same way that a non-retina PNG is resampled 2x by the browser).

> You use SVG Filters to change the color of the text. Do you see the same problem without using filters on the text?

Removing the SVG filter applied to the text indeed removes the (unintended) blur.

FWIW, Firefox seemed to have the same issue, but it’s fixed now. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=600207
