Re: [fxtf-drafts] [geometry] DOMMatrixReadOnly string init depends on backwards compatibility syntax

It's probably there because of the history of DOMMatrix, originally starting as part of SVG.  Many methods are the way they are (e.g., using degrees instead of radians) for backwards compatibility with SVG.

But since this particular method (constructor from a string) did not exist in SVG 1.1, I agree that there is no reason to use the SVG 1.1 transform syntax.

However, see issue #122, about not wanting to have DOMMatrix methods depend on the availability of a full CSS parser.
