ISSUE-2347: Define 'pt' to be 4/3 of a 'px' [SVG 2.0]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2347

Raised by: Anthony Grasso
On product: SVG 2.0

CSS will be defining 1pt to be 4/3 px. The main reason being that currently there is a miss-alignment with other web technologies.

Currently in SVG "1pt" equals "1.25px" (and therefore 1.25 user units). SVG should change the size of 1pt to align with CSS. A quick search indicates that 'pt' is not used as a default unit anywhere so there will be minimal impact if this unit of measurement is changed.
