In path data it is allowable to use scientific notation for numbers in
the format that the C language printf/scanf-family supports.

Is this allowable anywhere else?

In particular, can it be used in:
- lengths in CSS units?
- the fitBoxToViewport attribute of <svg>?
- element positions and sizes (x, y, width, height attributes) in user
  coordinates?
- the transform attribute?
- the points attribute of <polyline>?
