Would it be much more work to consider the effects of dash-array on the stroke's geometry than to consider the effect of markers? Not a big issue for me, but one which arose in reading the suggestions.

It would not be good for the bounding box to change if the stroke
dash-pattern is animated.

See last figure at: http://tavmjong.free.fr/blog/?p=821

A related question is what happens if the stroke width is animated?

As for markers... what happens if the marker contains an animated
element?
