Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Because the SVG definition, and more importantly the CSS definition
on which the SVG one is based, is esoteric and isn't what people think of when
they think of 'middle'.

What do browsers implement? If browsers use the same definition for 'middle'
here as for CSS and SVG, we can change it. (It looks like Opera does 'middle'
per CSS/SVG, and Gecko/WebKit do it per the HTML spec. Haven't figured out how
to test IE9 yet.)
