Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new presentation in LibreOffice (Impress). I chose the Vivid template.
2. Switch to View > Master Slide and add some text. (I did Insert > Text Box, drag out a text box on the master slide, enter "TEXT ON MASTER SLIDE", then select it and make it bold and red.)
3. Go to the first slide, it should be using this master, and enter some text on it.
4. File > Export, export as SVG.
5. View the SVG in a browser like Firefox or Konqueror.
6. Open the SVG in Inkscape
7. Import the SVG into LibreOffice Draw
User Profile Reset: No
You can edit the SVG's XML to make it work everywhere, as discussed in bug 105588#c12. To make the SVG from the STR to display correctly everywhere I had to:
* To show the Master Slide's content everywhere, find the top-level <defs> tag that encloses its content (probably the <defs> tag that contains <g ... class="Master_Slide">) and remove or comment out the opening and closing <defs> - </defs> tags.
* I think at this point the <script> tag is no longer needed and you can delete it.

simple slide whose "TEXT ON MASTER SLIDE" doesn't appear in Inkscape when exported as SVG

If this is implemented as optional, it seems the export dialog envisioned in bug 117708 would be a good way to present all the options.

My first thought was to make it optional, which seems to be a fact according comment 4. But actually I don't see such an option in ooO.Common.Filter.Graphic.Export.SVG.
