@dsanders11 From my POV I see two viable options:
 1. Use arc seconds, or
 2. Use degrees without rounding, but auto-snap values within 0.000001 of applied constraint.

Either would seem to me to solve most if not all rounding issues.

I don't like the `.toFixed(2)` solution, as it would seem to only exacerbate rounding errors with `step`.

Clearly, if arc seconds were commonly used, they're the inherently simpler option, but I don't have the domain knowledge to know if they are. Naively, I think I'd still pick degrees, but I'm not the target audience. I'd also follow any web precedent here if there is one.
