When exporting labelled layers from composer to SVG straight labels get exported as text objects broken into words. I.e. 'My label' ends up with two text objects: 'My' and 'label'.
When label is curved along line, then it gets exported as lot's of single-character text objects. This makes it very hard to work with them in vector editors like Inkscape or Illustrator.
SVG supports labels along path, so this is a much better way to export curved labels, instead of breaking them apart.
