Is "the bounding-box" for SVG the same as what SVGLocatable.getBBox  
returns on the element? Since those bboxes are in user-space coordinates  
it should be noted that they may not be aligned with the screen coordinate  
system. Or do you mean SVGLocatable.getScreenBBox (from SVGT12), which is  
aligned with the screen coordinate system?

Or do you mean that if one calls getClientRects on any SVG element you get  
back the rootmost <svg> element clientrect? And if an svg element is not  
inside an <svg> fragment what do you get? And in case there's an <svg>  
inside an <svg> and a you query a child of the innermost <svg> element, do  
you get the nearest or the rootmost <svg> element clientrect?

That seems sensible.
