And this is true only for objectBoundingBox coordinates (where 1.0 is 
equivalent to 100%). On the other hand, no percentages can be specified 
for userSpaceOnUse, and therefore a user can not define relative 
coordinates to the viewport. In this last case, the user can only use 
userspace coordinates. (The default values however, are relative to the 
viewport: for example cx of a radialGradient will be half of the 
viewport width).
