We did accept a requirement for SVG2 to improve the situation with seams 
between elements.  I wonder whether the super path proposal (or whatever 
solution we end up with for shared path edges) can help here, so that 
the implementation can be aware of what paths will result in full 
coverage of particular pixels.  I am not sure we want to go down the 
path of requiring FSAA with particular properties like shape-rendering 
-- if implementations are hardware accelerated and want to enable FSAA 
then I think they should just be able to.
