According to section 7.3 The initial coordinate system, "the SVG user 
agent should get its initial value for the size of a px unit in real world 
units to match the value used for other XML styling operations".

What reasons does the working group consider might justify implementors 
ignoring this recommendation? If there are no such reasons, why is the 
requirement not absolute? If there are requirements, could they be listed 
in the draft explicitly?

Please change the draft such that the requirement is absolute instead of 
conditional on the whim of the implementors.
