WebKit, Blink and Gecko all have some notations of styled elements. In WebKit and Blink it is StyledElement and in Gecko it is nsStyledElement. I wonder why it was not introduced to the standards bodies. It certainly would help with proposals to unify the style attribute for a set of elements and other style related presentation attributes.

We rely on CSS Transforms here which defines the relevant “box” for SVG elements as the object bounding box. MathML uses the CSS Box model as far as I know. At least with its later iterations.
