Re: [css21][css3][svg] SVG and unit-less length values

Hi, Folks-

I was under the impression that it was not possible to render real-world 
units to uncalibrated monitors, and that most monitors are uncalibrated; 
am I mistaken or confused (maybe thinking of color calibration), or has 
that changed?

Wouldn't it be possible to meet both use-cases by adding a property, 
something like 'unit-space':'realteive*|absolute', where the default is 
to use these abstracted units (for necessary bugwards compatibility), 
and the 'absolute' option would do its best to render the physical size 
as indicated?  This would be something like dealing with transforms or
