Maybe the coordinate system for angles was intentionally chosen this way  
because of consistency with Photoshop or something (I'm not familiar with  
it), but I thought I'd point out that it differs from CSS transforms  
(where positive angles are clockwise).

(The proposal doesn't specify a coordinate system, so I inferred it from  
what would make most sense given the pairings of angle intervals and  
corner starting points.)
