Ok, then I would request that the next edition of SVG Ess., on page 27,
(location of the very first basic shape example showing <line> tags with
mixed unit identifiers happily co-mingling), add the big turkey icon with
text emphasizing the above caveat.  The laity (like me), only read vulgate
books like SVG Ess. and not the Vulgate STDs documents so we need
the whole truth revealed to us, even if only in English.
