For this to work, we obviously need to insert SVG files that are the
same height as the current face.

Experimenting with this now, using my patch,

(insert-image (find-image '((:type svg
                             :file "material/file/ic_folder_24px.svg"))))

I'm getting an SVG in the buffer that is actually taller than the line.
When we added new SVG icons to customize recently, Alan Third fiddled
with the height and viewport in the SVG file to force it to be the same
height as the line.

But is there any way to do this directly from Emacs?  It seems like a
pain to have to edit the SVG file for every icon (and my attempts at
doing so has failed so far...).

In a web browser, I think you would just set the CSS width and height
to whatever you want and the browser would resize the image to fit.
