Why don't we just alter the SVG spec so that when drawing a stroke, the
bounding box used for the paint server is the bounding box of the path
including the stroke? I find it hard to imagine this would break anything
that wasn't already broken.

Then we can talk about "fill bounding box" and "stroke bounding box", and
assume that all current uses of "bounding box" refer to "fill bounding box"
unless otherwise stated.
