A further point is that the missing methods are important when you 
want to use scripts to enable objects to be dragged around the 
display with mouse move events, see, e.g. Jeff Schiller's article 
on enabling dragging in SVG:

http://blog.codedread.com/archives/2005/12/21/how-to-enable-dragging-in-svg/

It would be a great shame if we couldn't support dragging for rich 
web apps written in SVGT 1.2. The current draft has everything you 
need including mousemove events, and just lacks the createSVGPoint 
and matrixTransform methods.

Of course it would be even better if there was a simpler way to 
map the mouse event's screen coordinates back to user coordinates.
