I agree this is the correct implementation, but users like myself would
still like to be able to scale the image in the x direction and not have the
text stretch but yet adjust the x coordinate. 

example:  there is a rectangle with a label on top of it that is left
justified.  now if the rectangle is scaled (transform="scale(3, 1)) in the x
direction the label would also need to be moved (not stretched) in the x
direction.  This is the problem I face. There is a property in the adobe
viewer release notes that is not yet implemented called "font-stretch".
Would this help when adobe implements it?

The only work around that I can think of is to scale everything in the "x"
direction except the text then move the x coordinate of each and every
"text" appropriately.

thanks for your help,
