Four years ago there was a thread about whether an SVGMatrix passed to
SVGTransform::setMatrix is "live", i.e. whether subsequent changes to that
matrix object affect the transform. The thread started here.
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2004Jun/0016.html

There was followup discussion in this Bugzilla bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=249263
where people explained some use cases for having the matrix be "live".

As far as I can tell the 1.1 spec has still not been clarified to indicate
whether the matrix is live or not. Please come to a decision and issue a
spec update to indicate whether it's live or not.

Thanks,
Rob

the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
