chapter 11.4 of the spec reads

A subpath (see Paths) consisting of a single moveto is not stroked. A
subpath consisting of a moveto and lineto to the same exact location or a
subpath consisting of a moveto and a closepath will be stroked only if the
'stroke-linecap' property is set to "round", producing a circle centered at
the given point.

appendix F.5 'path' element implementation notes reads

If 'stroke-linecap' is set to butt and the given path segment has zero
length, do not draw the linecap for that segment; however, do draw the
linecap for zero-length path segments when 'stroke-linecap' is set to either
round or square. (This allows round and square dots to be drawn on the

ASV 3.0 implement the requirements according chapter 11.4
