Re: ISSUE-2021 (image-bbox): Bounding box of <image> subject to aspect-ratio preservation undefined [SVG Tiny 1.2]

It was pointed out to me off-list that there is currently this text in
the description of the “none” value for preserveAspectRatio="":

  none - Do not force uniform scaling. Scale the graphic content of the
  given element non-uniformly if necessary such that the element’s
  bounding box exactly matches the viewport rectangle.

This seems to imply the bounding box should be smaller if the image is
resized due to aspect-ratio preservation.
