What Ian's trying to say is that the precise algorithm for computing an inflated/deflated shape (due to shape-margin) aren't written into the spec, and they're non-trivial to figure out correctly. It would help a lot to produce these.

(For example, is it correct to handle ellipse() by just growing/shrinking the axises? That does *not* produce the same thing as "the shape obtained by adding all points X distance away from the edge", which isn't an ellipse any longer.)
