birtles has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-transforms] Spec and blink implementation of transform-box for
 SVG elements differ ==
The [spec 
says](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-transforms/#transform-box),

> "For SVG elements without an associated CSS layout box, the used 
value for border-box is view-box."[1]

[Erik points out 
that](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-fx/2015JulSep/0075.html),

> "It seems to me that a used value of 'fill-box' in this case would 
lead to more easily understood behavior than 'view-box'."

I believe Chrome ships with a used value of fill-box. Firefox is not 
shipping transform-box (see Mozilla [bug 
1208550](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1208550) and 
[bug 1209061](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1209061)) 
because we are waiting to see if the spec changes or Chrome changes. I
 have been unable to get any answer from blink folk about whether or 
not they are going to change this (see [twitter 
thread](https://twitter.com/brianskold/status/783171076532514816)).
