Steve,
The 'farthestViewportElement' is a DOM attribute attached to a particular
element (call it 'X') in the drawing. There are two cases:

1) Element X is the outermost 'svg' element. In this case,
farthestViewportElementwill be null
2) Element X is not the outermost 'svg' element, but instead is some
element inside. In this case, farthestViewportElement will point to the
outermost 'svg' element.

I'll clean up the wording for the next draft.
