I understand why you prefer the <img> tag over the <object> tag.
Finally, I can see that there are ways to use CSS on img+svg:
I failed to make the flower example work with the information on this
It could be my fault, but maybe also because the post targets the React

FWIW, here a brief description of how I solved my problem of making the
MDN flower work taking into account the comments for improvement as
far as I could. Thanks!
is a new derived backend for personal use. The commentary section of
the backend and MWE follow below:
;; This library implements an HTML derived backend for Org export.
;; It tries to address limitations of SVG images and CSS in HTML pages.
;; For each SVG image during HTML export:

;; embed the SVG image in an <object> tag.
;; 2. If not, it checks `svg-inclusion' and "image in-lining"
;; whether to copy the SVG contents to the HTML output.
;; 3. If not, it falls back to checking "image in-lining" whether to
;; embed the SVG image in an <img> tag (as any other image type).
;; 4. It is possible to set `svg-as-object' and/or `svg-inclusion':
;; - For each SVG link by means of "#+ATTR_HTML: :svg-as-object t"
;; or "#+ATTR_HTML: :svg-inclusion t".
;; - Within file scope by means of "#+OPTIONS: svg-as-object:t" or

;; - Within toplevel scope by means of the options
;; `org-html-svg-as-object' or `org-html-svg-inclusion'.

Open =doc8.svg= and =mwe.html= in Firefox to compare hovering over the
flower. The flower remains fully black in case of an M-non-WE.
