Hello Domenic,

As the Geometry Interfaces spec says, feedback should be sent to
public-fx@w3.org with subject line “[geometry] … message topic …”

I have forwarded your message to that list
since the Geometry Interfaces spec is in Last Call.

Editors, please follow up this Last call comment with Domenic, rather
than myself.
