In order to avoid the inconsistent definitions of units in CSS and XSL [1], we've removed the word "absolute" when referring to units.  See updated text below.

The algorithm has been clarified to cover these cases.  The updated text is now:

	# If the 'width' and 'height' of the rootmost svg element are both specified with unit identifiers (in, mm, cm, pt, pc, px, em, ex) or in user units, then the aspect ratio is calculated from the 'width' and 'height' after resolving both values to user units.
	# If either/both of the 'width' and 'height' of the rootmost svg element are in percentage units, the aspect ratio is calculated from the width and height of the 'viewBox' specified for the current SVG document fragment. If the 'viewBox' is not correctly specified, or set to none, the intrinsic aspect ratio cannot be calculated and is considered unspecified.

Yes, it is the same in Tiny.  As such, the text in Tiny will remain as is.  We will be sure to cover how this works in Full.

Please let us know, within 2 weeks, if this does not address your comments.
