I am sorry but I can't make it today.
However, I would like to bring up for discussion the possibility of a 
new feature/attribute for SVG.  I am constantly fighting with the SVG 
default of the Y-direction is positive downward on the screen.  It is 
opposite of all GIS application as well as graphs and PostScript/PDF.  
Appling a transform="scale(1,-1)" inverts the text. What do you think 
about an additional attribute in the <svg> tag that allows the y 
direction to be reversed? say y-direction="inverted" ?

Thanks
