According to section 7.8 The viewBox attribute, implementations are 
allowed to ignore the viewBox attribute in particular circumstances. The 
descriptive prose in that section does not take this into account, however 
(it is written in a way that assumes the attribute is never ignored).

The current wording of the conformance requirement is also very vague and 
unclear; it doesn't seem to define what should happen once the rectangle 
has been mapped -- in particular, it doesn't seem to require that the 
rectangle be used to create a transform for descendant elements.

Please correct section 7.8 The viewBox attribute so that the conformance 
requirements are absolute rather than mere recommendations, and so that 
the requirements are clear as to what they mean.
