Hi,

In the Conformance Criteria it says:

"All visual rendering must be accurate to within one device pixel to the
mathematically correct result."

I'm concerned this seems somewhat an excessive requirement, and with even
quite reasonable numbers (large viewbox, small stroke width, complicated
bezier path, high resolution output device,) we end up with conforming
SVG viewers needing better than IEEE-754 Doubles precision calculations.

Why the requirement on device pixels, rather than reference pixels?

Jim.
