Firstly I have another feedback on the TRBL specification: in CSS you
can specify negative numbers to go outside the given area. So, the
"Pro" on "not possible to crop outside the media" is not quite
correct. Also, the "Con" on "not usual and confusing" would be wrong,
since it is in use by CSS and everybody who has ever styled a web page
would have used it and gotten used to it.

Could everybody please review their answers to this particular poll
given these backgrounds? In particular since most answers are: choice
of xywh because "it is most common" or "it is in use by CSS" both of
which are incorrect.
