SVG's which only define a viewBox, as opposed to a viewBox / width / height, do not scale properly when used as a background with a size of cover. I have prepared an example to illustrate the issue. The first works as intended and properly scales the background: "http://jsfiddle.net/DuH9N/embedded/result/". The second does not properly scale the background in IE (works on Chrome and Firefox):  "http://jsfiddle.net/t4ysE/embedded/result/".
