[cairo] Can cairo generates <text> elements in the svg output ?

Currently, cairo generates text in svg by means of path for each glyhs,
there is no <text> elements generated. Thus, there is no way to extract
the text from an output file.  This issue was addressed before[1], but
it seems that today cairo still lacks this feature.

Is this feature planned ? Are there strong fundamentals motives against
it ? Does it present technical difficulties to implement ?
