Quadrant change???

Is there some way I can flip the Y-coordinate of all the objects in my SVG
file??? I've been playing with the 'transform' tag.
<svg x="-628" y="-320" width="991" height="687" transform="translate(0,320)
scale(1,-1) translate(0,687) translate(0,-320)">

BUT this also flips all my bitmaps and text so that they are upside down. I
want the position changed.

I guess what I want is to map the user coordinates in view space to the 
1st quadrant instead of the 4th.

I've been told I can't do this, any chance of this being added to the spec???
