ISSUE-2268 (implicit_lineto): Tighten up the implicit lineto commands in the path syntax [SVG Full 1.1]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2268

Raised by: Erik Dahlström
On product: SVG Full 1.1

SVG 1.1 and SVG Tiny 1.2 specs both say the following regarding the 'moveto' command in path syntax:
[[ If a 'moveto' is followed by multiple pairs of coordinates, the subsequent pairs shall be treated as implicit 'lineto' commands. ]]

It's unspecified whether those implicit 'lineto' commands are absolute or relative. Since the first 'moveto' command in @d will be interpreted as an absolute 'moveto' regardless of whether it said 'M' or 'm', that may need additional clarification wrt implicit 'lineto's that follow it.
