I request that the connector element as described in w3c's web page be 
made an svg standard. Here is the situation quite common in our 
application. A sample diagram is in the attached jpg file (Sorry my 
email client did not allow me to incorporate the image in the message).

The line ends (for both solid and dotted lines) are in a group 
consisting of multiple elements. At present, I have to hard-code the 
x,y's for the end points to define the line. Instead, in the connector 
element I can identify the ids of the elements at the ends and the x,y's 
will then be computed internally. More importantly, if I move the group 
element, then I do not have to recalculate the x,y's explicitly. They 
will handled naturally by the connector element. Hopefully, there will 
be a mechanism to uniquely calculate the end-point x,y's for the 
attached elements.

Thanks much.
Girish
