           Summary: It would be beneficial to have a property within
                    linewidth such as 'hairline'so that drawings could be
                    scaled and linewidth would be independant. For ex. a
                    line always having a width of 1 no matter the scale.

Comment:
It would be beneficial to have a property within linewidth such as
'hairline'so that drawings could be scaled and linewidth would be independant.
For ex. a line always having a width of 1 no matter the scale. This is almost
necessary when displaying engineering drawings that need to be zoomed in upon.

Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: I agree with the idea, but I think we should punt on this for now
and deal with it in a later version. There's a near-infinite number of things
we could add to the 2D API and every time we do so, browser vendors appear to
abandon everything else and rush to implement it. So it seems best to wait til
they've implemented a lot more of the rest of HTML5 before adding more things
here.
