I certainly hope it deals well with the embedding elements you mention.

But my chief concern is that the SVG and CSS specs act in a way that's 
intuitive to authors.  The current default dimensions have been a source 
of consternation on the main SVG developers list recently, and we think 
this would help.

I have no objections to this being discussed publicly (although it was a 
mistake that I sent my email to this public list instead of the SVG WG 
list).  However, I guess it would be up to Fantasai and the CSS WG if 
they wanted to share this proposal with the public (I'd be surprised if 
they objected to this).

In any case, it's rather a time-sensitive issue (CSS2.1 being in LC), so 
I don't know how much public debate the CSS WG would want to go into 
(although many eyes are good).  Can you please see to it that the CDF WG 
  looks at it as well?
