on wednesday it was resolved that an element with a non-scaling stroke
should disappear when a scale factor goes to 0.
After thinking about this some more, I think that this doesn't make sense.
The geometry of the stroke does not scale, only the path does.
So, when scale goes to '0', the path would go to a line or a dot which then
should be stroked.

If the element is skewed to 90deg, I agree that everything should disappear.

I think the behavior that was agreed upon will cause rendering glitches. If
you have an animation that goes from scale(1,1) to scale(-1, 1), you will
see a flicker 50% into the animation.
