Hi, Ian-

Thanks for your comment. We regret that we had no normative definition of
"bounding box" before. I have corrected this by creating a normative
definition which conflates information from throughout the spec and adds
conformance criteria, and replaced inline explanations with links to the
definition. Unfortunately, the changes are too extensive and distributed to
include in this email, but they will be reflected in the next public draft
of the specification.

If this does not satisfy your concern, please respond within 2 weeks with
further clarification.

Thanks-
Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
