Currently there doesn't seem to be a way to do that.   

I had been wondering about this as well: the problem is that Ipe doesn't write the SVG code itself, but simply renders the drawing using Cairo, and letting Cairo produce SVG.

Apparently other software that uses Cairo for output has the exact same problem: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/cairo/cairo/-/issues/253
